Hi, it’s me, Claire the Square, with another short fact about squares:
The area of a square is equal to the length of its sides squared. For example, a square with sides of length 2 has an area of 2^2 = 4.
I’ve landed in a fantastic city called Paris, which is in a country called France. The buildings here are beautiful, the food is delicious and there are lovely shapes everywhere!
My first stop was the Louvre Museum which used to be a fortress. Then it was changed to a palace which now holds the museum. Outside I found a crystal pyramid, and the palace itself was huge, with over 400 rooms and 35,000 artworks on display which all seemed very important!
Next week – another Scott the Dot Anecdote!
