PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I use this slideshow to introduce the concept of polygons to my third grade class. This is a PDF version of my Power Point (to preserve the fonts and formatting). Open it in Adobe, go to "View", go to "Full Screen" and you can view the presentation using the enter key or the down arrow key to advance slides.

In this PowerPoint you'll find:
*Simple definition of polygons
*Examples and non-examples of polygons
*Pictures of triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, octagons and decagons
*Real-life pictures where students can find common polygons

My students love figuring out that a star is a decagon. It always makes their day!

Hope you find it useful!
Katie

Thanks for sharing all of your hard work with us. I'm looking forward to following you and seeing your other activities!

Thanks Again!!!

Is this a Power Point or just a PDF?

On  May 12, 2013I Want to be a Super Teacher answered:
Hi PowerPoint Maniac! I know this probably sounds a little lame-o, but I was totally TpT starstruck when I saw your little picture on my Q&A! :) What a fabulous little surprise!

Right now this is only a PDF version. I originally had the PowerPoint and PDF version in a Zip file, but the fonts on the PowerPoint version were causing downloaders angst. :) I would be happy to e-mail you a PowerPoint version if you would like it though. Just let me know.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. It's graduation weekend out here in Colorado and it has been crazy!

Thanks and happy Sunday,
Katie :)
