Exploring Circles, Four Ways

Activity Type: Small Group

Parts of Shapes Identifier

Quick Description:

These four open-ended activities explore the concepts of concentric circles, spirals vs. concentric circles, and finding the center of a circle. They are less structured activities and more open-ended explorations. As such, follow children’s interest and capacity when determining whether to postpone, continue, or try the later sub-activities.
