Cylinders

Last year, when I was teaching my 1st graders a math lesson on 3-d shapes ... things got a BIT out of control.

One of the activities they had to do in their math workbook was to look around the classroom and find objects that look like cylinders. I used the Diet Coke can I was drinking out of as an example. I walked around and monitored the children, dishing out help and giving encouraging words.

I thought everything was okay.

Later, as the kids were at PE, I sat down to look at everyone's work. Low-and-behold ... I came upon THIS!

WOW!!!!! Those SURE don't look like "cylinders" to me!

Is my mind in the gutter?

Is that REALLY a "pop" and "lipstick?"

I shall not state names to protect the not-so-innocent!
