**National Curriculum Alignment:** The lesson aligns with the mathematics curriculum by focusing on geometry and its real-life applications. It helps students to develop critical thinking and teamwork skills while also reinforcing the importance of mathematics in various fields.

Teacher: "Good morning, class. Who has completed their homework on geometry from the previous lesson? Please come forward and present your work."

Teacher: "Today's lesson is all about geometry. We will be learning about the history of geometry, famous mathematicians who contributed to this field, and real-world applications of geometry. By the end of this lesson, you will have a better understanding of geometry and its significance in our daily lives."

Teacher: "Now, I want each one of you to take a card and read the fun fact on it. Then, I want you to research and write down the name of the mathematician who discovered the fact, and a real-life example of how the concept can be applied. You have 10 minutes to complete this task."

Teacher: "Now that we have learned about some interesting facts, let's work collaboratively in groups of four to answer some thought-provoking geometry-related questions on the worksheet provided. You have seven minutes to complete this task and submit your worksheet for grading."

Teacher: "Great work, everyone! We will take a quick break for a physical activity to recharge ourselves."

Teacher: "Let me show you a real-world application of geometry. You might have heard about architecture, fashion designing, or engineering. All of these fields rely heavily on geometry. Here is a quick demonstration on how to create a geometric shape using simple materials."

Teacher: "We are running out of time, but before we wrap up, let's summarize the key takeaways from today's lesson. Geometry is everywhere and plays a significant role in our daily lives. Your homework for the upcoming class is to research more about a real-world application of geometry and write a few paragraphs on it."

Teacher: "Please give me your completed cards. I will randomly check a few to ensure you have understood the concepts discussed. Thank you, everyone! See you soon."

- What is the definition of geometry?
- Who is Euclid and what is his contribution to geometry?
- Name three real-life applications of geometry.
- What is the significance of geometry in architecture?
- What is the Pythagorean Theorem and how is it used in geometry?
- How is geometry used in graphic design?
- What is symmetry in geometry and why is it important?
- Explain the difference between two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes in geometry.
- How is geometry used in the medical field?
- How has geometry influenced art throughout history?

- Geometry is the branch of mathematics that deals with the measurement, properties, and relationships of points, lines, angles, surfaces, and solids.
- Euclid was a Greek mathematician who is known as the "father of geometry" for his book "Elements" which provided a systematic approach to geometry.
- Answers may vary but three examples may include: measuring distances, navigation using maps, geometric shapes used in art and design.
- Geometry is essential in architecture as it is used to design and plan buildings, measure distances, angles, and volumes, and create geometric patterns in building facades.
- The Pythagorean Theorem states that in a right-angled triangle, the square of the length of the longest side (hypotenuse) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. It is used in geometry to find the length of one side of a right triangle given the lengths of the other two sides.
- Geometry is used in graphic design to create shapes, lines, and patterns, determine the placement of graphic elements, and ensure symmetry and balance in designs.
- Symmetry in geometry refers to the exact correspondence of two halves of a shape or object, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. It is important in geometry as it provides balance, aesthetic appeal, and ease of measurement.
- Two-dimensional shapes are flat with only length and width, while three-dimensional shapes have depth, length, and width.
- Geometry is used in the medical field for diagnostic imaging, such as CT scans, MRI, X-rays, and ultrasounds, where geometrical measurements are used to examine, detect, and diagnose illness or disease.
- Geometry has influenced art throughout history as artists have used geometrical shapes and patterns in their art and design, such as in Islamic art, Art Deco, and Op Art. They used geometry to create symmetry and balance, as well as to express abstract concepts and ideas.

- How can understanding basic geometry help us in our everyday lives?
- Can you give an example of a real-world application of geometry in the field of architecture?
- Can you explain how triangles are an essential part of basic geometric shapes?
- Can you think of a creative way to use geometric shapes in art or design?

- Jumping jacks
- High-knees running in place
- Standing toe-touches
- Arm circles
- Squats
- Lunges
- Plank hold
- Side plank hold
- Mountain climbers
- Burpees

Alternatively, here's a poem to guide the physical exercise break:

Get up from your seat, it's time for a break Let's do some exercises, for our body's sake

Jumping jacks and high-knees running in place Get your heart rate up, and quicken your pace

Standing toe-touches and arm circles too Stretch out your muscles, it's good for you

Squats and lunges, to strengthen your legs And don't forget the plank, to work your core and abs

Side plank and mountain climbers, for a challenge so great And finally, burpees, to finish off in a strong state

Now breathe in, breathe out, and take a deep sigh We're all energized, ready for the next lesson to try!
