Classifying Polygons


Hey kids!

This week we are continuing our study of polygons in math class. If you need a refresher as to what a quadrilateral is, check out this movie. I apologize in advance if it gets stuck in your head for, like, ever.

Woooaaahhh...Woooaaahhh... Quad-ri-later-als... Quad-ri-later-als...

During our last class we learned some important vocabulary words we could use to describe a polygon:

Plane, parallelogram, congruent, quadrilateral
to name a few.

Below you will find  our lovely Polygon Brainstorm.

As with all images on this site, click on the picture for a larger view.

Now, we will take the info we already have in our brains (and notebooks), and learn to classify polygons. Here are a few images to help you get started. 

This chart shows the hierarchy of Quadrilaterals. Cut out the shape names and glue them in the correct spot. When you are done, your hierarchy chart should make sense as you follow the branches. 

Our 5.G.3 notebook pages include vocabulary words and three handy charts. You may need several pages to fit all of the information. Check your k-mail for printable pages! Take a look at my notebook pages (above) to make sure you have everything you need. 

Check back for more info, movies and games related to Classifying Polygons after today's Class Connect!
