This is a wonderful tool that I use to engage students with the characteristics of 2-dimensional shapes. I usually use it at the end of the quadrilaterals unit.
This can be used as a formative assessment or project. I have even used it as a group project and had them present on large poster boards to the class.
Students use their knowledge of the characteristics of shapes in order to personify and represent the shape through social media. For example, one student chose a square and made an Instagram profile for Mr. Square. They drew pictures of the square at the gym with the caption "Even when I bulk up all my sides stay proportional." Then someone had commented on the picture with "Those angles are looking all right!"
I like to like to let the students use their own creativity to engage with the shapes. It is fun for them and it is fun for us as teachers to hear their jokes. It definitely beats rote memorization of the characteristics!
Included is the directions and rubric.
