I had students fill out a worksheet with their guided learning experience. They cut the Play Doh in different ways to find circle, parabola, ellipse.
Here is the link to the worksheet: https://goo.gl/1Ih64F
I made homemade PlayDoh which some of them didn't turn out as well as they could have. The gloves made it more of an experience. Next year I will see if I can get something to make it feel more authentic.
