Students will be creating a Polygon Person (or Pet) using polygons (triangles, parallelograms, trapezoids, squares, rectangles, etc.) that you make and cut out. Students will use the computation sheet to calculate the area of each of their polygons and then use them to calculate the total surface area of their person/pet.
Can be an in-class or out of class project.
- clear step-by-step directions
