Building Shapes

On September13, all of my students participated in  team building activity with lots of math built in. I'm sneaky that way. Students were given a 7-8 foot piece of rope, and put into groups. This challenge was presented: How many of these shapes can you group make? Students found it hard at first to make them, but after a while, each class had success. We learned bigger groups were better!
