PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

As a kid, I loved "Hidden Picture" puzzles! This 4th grade geometry activity incorporates the fun of "hidden pictures" while also challenging students to think critically and creatively about lines, angles, and shapes.

After designing a house using specific geometric elements, (quadrilaterals, acute triangles, parallel lines, etc.), students' explore their classmates' designs searching for the "hidden pictures" (geometric elements). Students get a double dose of identifying and classifying shapes, angles, and lines while having FUN learning!

An analytic rubric with detailed descriptors is provided to support student success with clear expectations.
