Identify polygons by their properties with the help of the Lygon family!!!! Paula, Paul and Lil Paul Lygon will need your help to determine if they have chosen the correct polygon. Each family member has stated the properties they are looking for. We need your help to determine if they chose the correct shapes.
Your students will need to know acute angles, right angles, obtuse angles and parallel lines before beginning this activity.
They will be using Mathematical Practice #4 ( Justify and crituque) from Common Core Standards to figure out whether or not the family member made the correct choice. If they do not they must explain why on their record sheet.
Before solving have your students predict who they think will identify the polygons correctly. Will it be Paula Lygon, Paul Lygon or Lil Paul Lygon???
This product includes:
- 15 different polygons to examine (color or black and white)
- 1 Report Sheet (color or black and white)
