Description

Looking for a fun interactive teaching idea for attributes of polygons? Well bingo! Look no further as 2D Shape Sort Classifying Polygon Activity Classify Quadrilaterals Game Puzzles, for CCSS 3.G.1, will serve as an exciting lesson plan for 3rd grade elementary school classrooms. This is a great resource to incorporate into your unit as a guided math center rotation, review game exercise, small group work, morning work, remediation, intervention, rti, or test prep end of the year activity. It can also be used as a quiz, drill or assessment tool to help determine student mastery of the learning target. Whether a student is homeschooled or given this task as a homework assignment, kids will also love working on these as an at home learning activity to study and improve their skills.

This 2D shapes and attributes puzzle set includes 14 colorful jigsaw puzzles, answer key, and an optional station instruction page with an example. These come as pdf printable sheets that can be printed on card stock and laminated for long-term use. As a suggestion, store them in a sealable gallon storage bag and place them in a foldable bin or tub for students to use throughout the year for enrichment when they finish early. Another idea, for a craft project, is students can glue the completed puzzles into a spiral notebook or journal as a model reference sheet. They can also be glued on a poster for displaying on a bulletin board or as a wall anchor chart.

It covers identifying the word name of a 2D geometric shape picture based on its properties (number of sides, angles, and/or parallel sides). In addition to having puzzles of regular and irregular polygons, there are also some non-polygons that students will need to recognize don't meet the definition requirements of a polygon. By solving the attributes of shapes problems to sort, scoot and match the puzzle pieces, students can gain confidence in an important and sometimes challenging skill. Your students will love to practice and learn to develop strategies in the area of classifying two dimensional shapes based on characteristics with this resource!

Relevant Grade 3 Common Core Standard 3.G.A.1

Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
