First graders just finished up this fun robot project. On day one, we learned about geometric shapes, shapes that have exact edges that you might see in math class. The students brainstormed all the different geometric shapes they knew. I was impressed when I heard first graders shouting out "trapezoid!" and "rhombus!" Then, each student created the main shape of his or her robot using ONLY geometric shapes. On the second day of our project, students decorated their robots with fun details, thinking about what their robots might be used for.
