Item description for Janice VanCleave's Geometry for Every Kid: Easy Activities that Make Learning Geometry Fun (Science for Every Kid Series) by Janice VanCleave...

Overview
Introduces lines, angles, triangles, squares, polygons, circles, planes, area, and surface area

Publishers Description
How do you fold a sheet of paper into the shape of a whale? How do you measure the area of a pizza pie? How can you draw a circle within a circle without lifting your pencil from the paper?
Now you can discover the answers to these and other fascinating questions about elementary geometry--the study of shapes. Packed with illustrations, Geometry for Every Kid uses simple problems and activities to teach about acute and obtuse angles, parallel and perpendicular lines, plane and space figures, and much more By arranging the pieces of an intriguing Chinese puzzle called a tangram, you'll explore all the different shapes you can form. You'll also learn how to create a colorful 3-D drawing that seems to rise right off the page And, by building a geoboard, you'll discover a quick, fun way to compare the area of different geometric figures.
Each of the activities is broken down into its purpose, a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and an easy to understand explanation. Every project has been pretested and can be performed safely and inexpensively in the classroom or at home.

Great fun with my eight year old!  Aug 1, 2002
I bought this for my son who loves math and building things. We've only gone through four chapters so far, but we've had great fun identifying how many right angles there are in his room and folding a oragami whale. This book was a real treat for him. Parents of gifted children should dive into this whole series with their kids, and I think they're great for teaching any kid that math is fun!
