This was very simple to just follow the visualization exercises that appear in the book for each family in the elements of shape chart. We have also been playing the visual game, page 64, every time we think about it. Super Hero loves to play it whenever we’re eating frozen yogurt. (All of us in the family have been kind of having a love affair with Yogurtland in Pinecrest and Coco Limon in Coral Gables.) We take turns describing something like a dot in the center with a circle around it not very close together, there is rather ample space between them. Then there are about 8 straight lines, each line connects the dot in the center to the circle around it. The lines are evenly spaced. What is it? (a car’s tire.)
