  1. This bundle is designed to enrich and support your Geometry unit. There is a strong focus on angles, polygons - with an emphasis on triangles and quadrilaterals, identifying parallel and perpendicular lines in polygons, identifying lines of symmetry.

Students need practice identifying parallel and perpendicular line segments in polygons. My Sort and Solve activities are the perfect solution. This engaging sort gives students an opportunity to look at 24 polygons and sort them according to its line segments. Students will decide if the polygon has only parallel lines, only perpendicular lines, both parallel and perpendicular lines or if the polygon does not have parallel or perpendicular lines. Then students will then solve two problems where polygons have already been sorted. Students will decide how the polygons are sorted. An Answer Key is provided.

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.
Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
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.
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.
