A Geometric Scavenger Hunt
Smart, Julie; Marshall, Jeff
Science and Children, v45 n2 p36-40 Oct 2007
Children possess a genuine curiosity for exploring the natural world around them. One third grade teacher capitalized on this inherent trait by leading her students on "A Geometric Scavenger Hunt." The four-lesson inquiry investigation described in this article integrates mathematics and science. Among the students' discoveries was the fact that geometry was no longer just an isolated concept in their math books; rather, it provided a tool that allowed them to examine their world in a completely different way.
