She invited me to use her creations to create a product to share with others. My students are currently elbows deep into a Geometry study. I thought putting penguins and polygons together would make a perfect pair. I created a polygon sort:
In the activity, students take 24 penguin cards that have various shapes on the penguin bellies. The students sort them into two piles: polygons and NOT polygons. When my students are discussing the shapes that are NOT polygons, I have them verbally state why they are not polygons. I find that by doing this, they are reinforcing their knowledge of what makes a shape a polygon.
Since this is a new creation, I would love to give away a copy of the file for free to one of my followers. Just leave me a comment telling me one of your favorite games or activities your students enjoy while learning about geometry. I will pick one winner on Tuesday.
Head on over to Richi’s Penguin Party and see where her adorable penguins will be popping up next!
