PLD 6-12 Years: Geometry and Cosmic Education

Date: 2 April, 2022
Location: Eastern Suburbs Montessori Primary School, Auckland

From the Ancient Egyptians to present day! Geometry is everywhere in the world around us, both in natural and man made environments. It is a beautiful way to engage tamariki who are yet to discover their own mathematical minds, and is an integral part of Cosmic Education. Come join with like-minded primary kaiako to explore real life examples and applications of some concepts and lessons. This workshop will include some story telling, theory, art and a hands on component, which can be immediately and easily implemented in your 6-12 classrooms.

We will be going for a short walk outdoors if the weather is fine and possibly over uneven ground, so please wear appropriate footwear.

To Bring: For the hands on component, please bring a sharp pencil (mechanical pencils are best if possible), a ruler, a drafting compass and a book to work in (either a quad book or a blank notebook).
