This Geometry Game is a fun way to practice 2d shapes and polygons. Students have to use math vocabulary to describe quadrilaterals, polygons, triangles, and other geometry vocabulary.

The math game is similar to "Taboo" - students are required to describe the geometric term shown without using certain words. The game is not only fun, but it really forces students to use their math vocabulary and be creative at the same time!

This Geometry Game Includes:

  • 2 Different Versions
  • Version 1: Students can play in a group
  • Version 2: You can play as a class and split them into two groups
  • I have also included a blank copy that you can fill in with additional math vocabulary

Common Core Aligned: 3.G.A.1, 4.G.A.1, 4.G.A.2, 5.G.B.3

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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.
Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.
Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
