Learning the distinct features of shapes can be tricky. I've created these two shape features foldables to provide you with an easy way to introduce shape features and provide students with a great study option. These PDF file includes two foldables that are adorable and fun to use.
The outer layer of each foldable includes a topic heading (quadrilaterals or triangles) and the name of each shape reviewed. The inner layer of the foldables is divided into sections by shape. In each section, there are two or three bullet points describing features unique to the specific shape. Words are missing from each description to create interactive notes. Create the foldables together as a class to introduce the concept or use it independently later on to assess student understanding.
The following shapes are covered in the foldables.
