Sample Exercise
What We Do
Children learn geometry as shown in the image above.
1. acute angle.
2. obtuse angle.
3. circle
4. parallel lines
5. perpendicular lines.
Children move freely around the room. When the music stops, they freeze into a ‘geometric shape’. They also try to pair up with their geometric ‘shadow’.
