Hands-on math lessons are great, but they're even more effective when they're lively and fun, too. The geometry activities in Polygon Explorations are designed around a set of 30 Poly Shapes, and all of the activities require active engagement and math talk. From introductory activities to review games, these lessons will keep your class focused and highly involved. All of the geometry activities can be used in a whole group setting, and many of them also work with cooperative learning teams and in math centers. If you laminate the shapes, you can use them over and over throughout the year to engage students in hands-on activities with geometric concepts. This Smartboard version includes a unique gallery of all 30 shapes so that your students can manipulate them on the Smartboard as well as on their desks. It also includes charts that correspond with the sorting lessons. You can preview the entire ebook here.
If you don't have a Smartboard, you can buy the PDF form of these activities alone here: Polygon Explorations
