What is Geometry?

Instructional Time: 30 minutes

Have a conversation with students about geometry, its meaning, and how we’ve seen it in our world using the following questions to get them started.

KNOW:
-What is geometry?
-What kinds of words are associated with geometry?
-How do you think people use concepts you’ve learned in geometry in everyday life?

WANT to KNOW:
-What kinds of things make you wonder about geometry?
-What would you like to know more about?

Students will pair-share in groups to begin with, followed by a whole class discussion. Students will write their responses on post-it notes and put them on a chart or write directly on chart . These will be posted on the wall in the room throughout the project duration.
