Geode

Get kids excited about science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) with this fun hands-on collaborative project. Typically done during a Family Math Night event, this project can also be done in the classroom. The best part is, each person is individually represented in the final product!

Participants will learn about the different crystals found in geodes. They will create their own crystal that will be added to the collaborative geode. Specific geometric vocabulary such as polygon, quadrilateral, parallelogram, trapezoid, triangle, etc. will be reinforced.
