Incorporate Geometry & Money concepts through this exciting Christmas themed activity. Students are asked to identify polygons and assign each polygon an assigned money value and this creates their Polygon ornament shop. Students will then determine the value of money they would need to purchase ornaments from their store on each tier of the tree. In addition, students will practice drawing polygons as they add the ornaments to their own polygon tree.
