This activity is perfect for interactive notebooks, introduction lessons to geometry, or vocabulary pages for math. Included are four different pages that just need to be printed for students to use. The first two pages are for students to list the name of polygons along with the number of sides, just given a picture. These pages also have students split up each polygon into triangles to help find the sum of the interior angles. The polygons listed are triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons, octagons, nonagons, decagons, dodecagons, and n-gons.
The second student page is a similar version to the first couple pages, but students just have room to write the theorem for each polygon instead of draw a picture.
The final page shows eight different polygons and asks students to write the name of the polygon and the sum of the interior angles for that polygon. (Polygons shown are all regular polygons.)
Also included are pages that have two large shapes on each page. (One page has two triangles, one has two quadrilaterals, etc.) One of the shapes is plain. The other shape is identical with the exception of being split into triangles for you. I like to show my students the actual division of the polygons to help the visual and kinesthetic learners break up the shapes.
Finally, there are pages with cards so students can match up each shape name, outline of shape, sum of interior angles, and one interior angle.
The last two activities include triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons, octagons, nonagons, decagons, and dodecagons.
