Folding Fun with Circles


Fold Circles to create additional shapes and solids.

Fold Circles in various ways to discover new shapes and encourage students to think outside the box! With each folding technique, students will recognize new shapes and identify attributes. This is a great opportunity to compare, contrast and classify shapes. Guide students through this exercise and have them create a table of results. Students can draw the shapes and note the attributes. Challenge students to fold squares, rectangles and triangles to create additional shapes and share with the class. Consider folding shapes of various sizes.
