Super Circles

Super Circles

These questions can build awareness of the special properties of circles.

  • Drop something into still water and notice the concentric circles. See if they have the language to describe what happens when the circles meet. Can they draw it?
  • Notice how water goes down the drain? What shape does it follow?
  • Notice nature-made circles – bubbles, oranges, eyes, planets, banana (slices?) …..
  • Explore man-made circles. Why are balls circles?
  • Circle dances – and sitting in circles can be very special. No beginning or end, everyone faces one another.
