This product includes an interactive PowerPoint and Guided Notes to help students learn or review how to classify polygons. When using this PowerPoint I print out the Guided Notes at 80% so they can be glued into student notebooks. As I go over the information in the PowerPoint students fill in the blanks in their guided notes.
When we reach the "Name the..." slides I pass out dry erase boards and markers to the class. I show the image or description and students write the answer down and hold it up so I can easily monitor understanding.
My students love these notes and especially love the interactive portion.
This activity covers the following concepts:
- polygons vs non-polygons
- classifying triangles (by sides and angles)
- classifying quadrilaterals
- quadrilateral hierarchy
