We've been working on 2D Geometry and geoboards are a great way to allow students to explore the properties of 2D geometry on their own. While using the elastics they are developing a sense of how they can manipulate the shapes and they will have better recall of how to create those shapes.
When it comes to math (and most other subjects) I truly believe that hands on activities (including apps) are the way to go!
So, here is my overview of this app that I now love so much!
So to sum it all up, I love this app!! The day that I wanted to use the school geoboards I couldn't find them at first. Then I finally did find them but all we had were the larger boards which I didn't want to use AND there were NO elastics! Don't you just hate when the happens? I should probably plan my lessons much further in advance to make sure I have all the materials I need...but this app totally saved the day!
Oh and did I mention this app is totally FREE!!!
I also made these activity centers for students to do after they finished exploring with the Geoboards app. If you're interested in the activities just click here or on the image below.
Let me know what you think of this app if you've tried it out!
