1. Build basic shape of triangle.
2. Explore other geometrical shapes that can be derived from basic triangles and squares.
3. Let the kids understand that many things around us have basic geometrical shapes.
4. Use imagination and creativity to design models or games derived from these basic shapes.
Start with the basic shape
if you add a triangle to the right, you get a square
Starting with the basic shape again,
add a triangle on the top left gives you a parallelogram
Again, start with the basic shape
adding another triangle on the bottom left you get an isosceles triangle
adding a triangle to the right, you get a trapezoid
from the trapezoid, add a triangle on the right for an isosceles trapezoid
or add a triangle on the left for a rectangle
