We went on a geometry walk and took pictures of the shapes we had learned (Square, triangle, rectangle, circle, oval, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, cube, cone, and sphere).
We happened to have a fairly good hexagon shape in a stepping stone:
I drew these shapes onto construction paper to be pages in a mini-book. Gracie cut out the shapes, glued the pictures onto the pages, and traced the shape within the picture.
The other really cool thing we did was create a geometric hut out of rolled newspapers. It lasted about a week. Not too shabby!
