Shapes in Math, Science and Nature: Squares, Triangles and Circles

We rated this book:


Two-dimensional shapes like the circle, square, and triangle, and three-dimensional versions of those same shapes are described in this book. There are many hands-on projects involving geometry, science, and nature, such as making paper airplanes, flattening ball cookies into disks, and finding the area of a square. There are lots of projects so I was not able to do them all. I really enjoyed reading about the different projects, though, and will be asking my mom to let me do more later. My favorite project so far was making a paper airplane out of two triangles and two rectangles. I didn’t even have to ask my parents for help! My paper airplane worked very well, even though sometimes its nose was squished when it hit the ground (or the wall). I can’t wait to squish the sphere cookies into disks. There are some things in here that I didn’t understand, but I was able to understand after I read the author’s words. I would recommend this book for children over the age of six because it’s kind of complex. The pictures did help when I was working on my projects, but they were kind of complex, too. This book was my favorite I’ve reviewed so far!
