Jungle Geometry Vocabulary Cards for Polygons
Geometry is full of vocabulary that students need to understand. A triangle is not just a triangle; there are different types depending on the angles and lines, such as acute equilateral, acute isosceles, right isosceles, right scalene, obtuse isosceles, and obtuse scalene. Within the category of quadrilaterals, some polygons fit into multiple categories. It takes a lot of practice to keep it all straight!
That’s the idea behind my sets of Geometry Vocabulary Cards. In this set, which features polygon vocabulary, you will receive cards for 26 key words relating to polygons. Each card has either the word itself, the definition, or a picture, for a total of 78 cards.
The cards can be used in a variety of ways. When students are just learning the words, you might have them work with a partner and just make matching sets of 3. Later on, students can play a Concentration-type game using 2 out of the 3 cards, (for instance the name and picture), to make matches. (Have the players evenly divide the definition cards among them, and if they make a match for one of the definitions they have, it is worth an extra point.) Students can also play a version of “Go Fish” where they ask for cards to go with a particular word.
Words Included in this Set:
polygon vertex triangle acute equilateral triangle acute isosceles triangle right isosceles triangle right scalene triangle obtuse isosceles triangle obtuse scalene triangle quadrilateral parallelogram rectangle square rhombus trapezoid kite pentagon hexagon heptagon octagon nonagon decagon regular polygon irregular polygon line of symmetry congruent similar
Please note that this set is very similar to another product that I have, Geometry Vocabulary Cards for Polygons
This set has a couple of different cards and does not have polygons larger than a decagon, Most of the cards are the same, however, just with a jungle theme. If you already have the other set, please do not purchase this one unless you want the different theme.

I also have a set of Geometry Vocabulary Cards for Lines and Angles
that uses the same background design. If you combine the sets, you have a comprehensive set of 2-D geometry terms for 4th grade!
