As part of our Waldorf geometry unit, we are learning how to create shapes by shading them from the periphery, from the center and from intersecting lines. Join me as I make three chalk drawing to accompany this unit.
These drawings are for the first couple lessons in geometry and serve as an introduction to shapes. We depart shortly from the lesson plan to spend more time and the terminology of quadrilaterals and explain the various types (rectangle, square, parallelogram, etc.) and some attributes of each before moving on to the next lessons.
