This four page math resource includes unusual definitions for 20 plane geometry terms; each definition is a play on words or a parody. For example: “A place where people are sent for committing crimes” with the answer being “prism”. Twenty-six different geometry terms that are possible answers are listed in a word bank, but only 20 of the words are used in the matching exercise. The students are to choose the word they believe best matches each uncommon definition. They then write the letter of their answer on the line provided. An answer key is included. This is a fun assignment for any math class that is studying geometry.
