Design a School
There are many families living in the pretend town Squareville, but no school for the children to go to and learn.  Imagine that you are an architect famous for the schools you have built all over the country.  Using triangles, squares, circles, and rectangles design a school that the children can go to.  Save the town with shapes!

  2. Using a different color for each shape draw your design for the new school.
  3. Tell or label the name of each shape.
  4. I will then scan and publish your design on the Internet.
