This file contains two bump games to give students practice identifying polygons with 10 or fewer sides. Each game includes directions and a key that students can use to check answers.
**These games are wonderful practice for any student learning about polygons and are specifically aligned with Virginia SOL 4.12b.
Bump games work well as math centers and as practice for early finishers. They are also a fun way to review before a test.
**Polygon Bump #1 includes the terms triangle, rhombus, octagon, decagon, nonagon, hexagon, heptagon, rectangle, pentagon, trapezoid, and quadrilateral. Most of the shapes pictured on this game are regular polygons.
**Polygon Bump #2 includes the terms parallelogram, pentagon, octagon, decagon, heptagon, nonagon, hexagon, trapezoid, quadrilateral, triangle, and NOT a polygon (circle and 4-sided figure with rounded corners). The shapes on this game are irregular polygons.
**Each pair of students needs two dice and 20 markers (ten each of two colors). Directions:Player A rolls two dice and finds the sum. Find the polygon that is next to the sum. Use a marker to cover the polygon on the Game Board. Player B takes a turn.
If the polygon already has a marker on it, the player can BUMP the marker off of the board and replace it with his/her own marker. Once a player has put two markers on apolygon, the space is LOCKED and markers can no longer be BUMPED. The player who places all ten markers on the Game Board first is the winner!
