Mrs. Hvizdos challenged her Second Graders…The students in Room 210 had to create a Shape Robot using everyday geometric shaped items from home. They could not purchase any item for their Shape Robot.  One of the Second Grade goals is to be able to organize information. The students had to organize the items they build their robots with  into types of  shapes including 2 and 3 dimensional.  Some students created different types of  graphs to organize their information while others made numbered lists. All students presented their Robots to the class!
