On Friday, some 8th graders from Isle of Hope PK-8 got a chance to check out some examples of geometry in the real world.
The students took a filed trip to a few of the squares in downtown Savannah. As part of their final project in geometry, they took pictures of examples of different shapes. Teachers say they enjoy getting the chance to give students real life experiences.
"Savannah is the inspiration. It is just so beautiful. I don't feel like the kids get out in it enough. You know the tourists come from across the country and around the world but the people who live here sometimes don't get out and see what a beautiful place we live in," said Lynda Oliver, 8th grade science and math teacher.
The Savannah Foundation provided the grant that paid for the cameras, the memory cards, lunch and even the bus service.
