Creating a Geometry Learning Tool with Python’s Turtle library can offer an interactive way to explore and understand geometric concepts. This example program will focus on drawing different geometric shapes based on user input, explaining their properties, and calculating and displaying certain metrics like perimeter and area.

### Program Overview

The program will:

- Ask the user to select a geometric shape from a list (e.g., Circle, Square, Triangle).
- Draw the selected shape on the screen.
- Display basic properties and calculations related to the shape (e.g., area, perimeter).

### Program Features

**Interactive Shape Selection**: The user is prompted to enter the type of geometric shape they wish to explore.**Drawing Shapes**: Depending on the user’s choice, the program draws a circle, square, or equilateral triangle using Turtle graphics.**Property Display**: After drawing the shape, the program calculates and prints properties like area and perimeter/circumference to the console, providing an educational insight into the geometry of the shape.**Customization Options**: The user can specify dimensions for the shapes, like side length for the square and triangle, or radius for the circle, making the learning experience more interactive.

### Educational Value

This Geometry Learning Tool serves as both an educational resource and a programming project that combines Python coding with fundamental geometric concepts. It can be further expanded to include more shapes, more complex geometric calculations, and even quizzes to test the user’s understanding, making it a versatile tool for learning and teaching.
