We did a project in math called Geo-bunny! This was our goal: Queen Smith was looking for new bunny’s to join her bunny tribe. So we had to create a bunny out of geometric shapes, find the perimeter & area of the shapes and come up with what is called a bunny bio ( a story for your bunny). You had to present your bunny to the class and Queen Smith so you could try to convince the queen to except the bunny into the bunny tribe! You got a book called your bunny booklet to write down how you got the answer to what the perimeter and area was. You had to write down the angles and the sum of the angles. You named what shape it was and if it was a triangle what type of triangle. Here is my Story:
My bunny is named John! John is a trained astronaut that has been flying since he was a kid. He can fly to the moon to get chocolate for every one. If you have a good taste in chocolate then you defiantly know that the best chocolate comes from the moon. He can do that for you…. but only if you except him into your bunny tribe.His one weakness is that if he eats a carrot he can die! So you need to make sure that he is on his all chocolate no carrot diet. John was recently in a antecedent with his space mobile that is why he is a bit of ruff shape . If you look at the background you can see his space mobile.
I really enjoyed doing this project with the class! One struggle for me was getting the hang of area for compound shapes. Another struggle was trying to remember the formulas for each shape.
Have you done Perimeter and area?
Have a wonderful day,
