Such as squares, diamonds, rhombus

In every area you will find

A formula in your mind

In math you can trust

*Limerick by Cindy Briles & Sheng Yang*

Our Geometry class was scary,

solving the problems got hairy.

Our eyes bugged out

and we began to shout!

When it comes to math now-

we figured out how.

Thanks to Pam by far,

more confident we are!

Geometry is

more fun than social studies

and more fun than science

*Haiku by Pat Blanton & Paula Hamrick & Kari Thomas*

**S**ome have many sides to count, but some

**H**ave none and are completely round

**A**rea is the amount of space a shape covers

**P**erimeter is the distance around

**E**quations create a problem to solve, and

**S**olutions are the answers we are looking for

*Acrostic by Sonya Elliott & Tanya Mussetter*

Once there was a square

who had 4 sides.

Each side being equal and wide.

At every corner I am 90 degrees.

So measure me if you please!

*Narrative by Mandy Hinkle & Cheryl Martin*

**T**he first letter in my name.

**R**ectangle I am half

**I**have three corners.

**A**ll sides may be equal.

**N**o circles here

**G**eometry I am part of.

**L**ike me or not

**E**very triangle equal 180 degrees.

Acrostic by Mandy Hinkle & Cheryl Martin

Prisms

Prisms here, prisms there

prisms can be found most anywhere!

My cereal box and even my T.V.

I can't believe there are so many.

Just take a look. . . prisms are everywhere!

*Acrostic by Melessa, Amy, Marcia*

Equilateral.

Triangle, acute angles.

Angles, sides equal.

Geometry Rules

First multiply base times height

To find area.

*Haiku by Kristie Hess, Kathy Walker, & Michele Martin*

"No wonder they call me a square"

My desk measures 3" x 3',

My book 12: x 12:

My locker number is 180,

with a combination of 30, 60, 90.

My favorite holiday would be Pythagoras Day,

and my favorite gift a protractor.

My bedroom is laid out in all right angles,

No wonder they call me a square.

*Narrative by Kristie Hess, Kathy Walker, & Michele Martin*

*Acrostic by Tammy Hammer & Gina Sain*

**A**ngles here, angles there,

**T**here are angles everywhere

**T**riangles lines equal three

**R**ight angles equal 90 degrees

**O**h how dull our world would be,

**If**we did not have angles to see.

We will discuss shapes

including angles and lines

When we teach math later.
