Here’s a little activity to wrap up our geometry study for the week. Have your students consider the following drawing and try to identify as many polygons as they can. If they need a little guidance, here are some possibilities…
other irregular quadrilaterals
a multitude of triangles — equilateral, isosceles, and scalene, as well as acute, right, and obtuse
I’ve done this as a scavenger hunt or a coloring activity, and I’ve had kids identify shapes by outlining them in different colors or by assigning names to the necessary points. Any way we try it, it’s always fun!
