This Power Point takes students on a scavenger hunt through city photographs to find real life examples of the following geometry terms: open figure, closed figure, polygon, quadrilateral, congruent, right angle, acute angle, obtuse angle, parallel lines, and perpendicular lines. Presentation begins with a list of terms for the students to review. Following slides show terms, definitions, and real life examples often outlined with animation and fun sound effects. Once all terms are reviewed, students are shown large photos and are given the opportunity to see what they can find. At the end the presentation closes with a non-example of polygons and students are to determine if it is a polygon or not and why. Presentation gives the teacher and class many opportunities for discussion of important geometric terms. Photos were taken in Warren, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; and one from Boston, MA. All photos are originals. I originally used Comic Sans font, but am noticing in the thumbnails that when it uploaded to TPT it is showing more of a cursive font, let me know if it downloads that way and I can revise it to a different font.
