Product Description
This Triangle Matching Game will have students reviewing triangle names and their corresponding properties in a fun and engaging way.

When I first introduced the concept that the shape my students had been calling a "triangle" since kindergarten also had other names like "equilateral" or "acute", they FREAKED OUT. This concept of hierarchical groups of shapes (5.B.G.4) was very tough for them to grasp. This game helps build their comfort level with the idea that every shape has several names and that each name corresponds with a property that gives it that name.

This game includes ten "Mystery Triangles" and for each one, students decide the name of the shape based on its sides and angles. Then students match each name with the property that gives it that name. For example- "This shape is a right triangle because it has one right angle" and "This shape is an isosceles triangle because it has exactly two congruent sides." But also, "This shape is NOT an obtuse triangle because it does not have one obtuse angle."

This product includes:
⇒Teacher Implementation Guide
⇒10 Game Mats (each with a different Mystery Quad)
⇒Deck of 14 Cards (7 shape names and 7 geometric properties), duplicated for each student

This game can be used whole group, as a math center, in small groups, for partner work, as a take-home activity, or as a challenge activity for early finishers. The possibilities are truly endless!

The game is designed for 4th or 5th grade, but could also be used as a review game for any 6th -12th grade math classroom.
