Geometry, Shapes, & Polygons

We can see shapes all around us! Everywhere we go, we are surrounded by shapes. Today, we learned a bit more about the shapes we see. We also learned some tricks to remembering each shape. Here's a little bit about each shape:

After learning about each shape, we played a game called "The Last Block". With a partner, students used polygons to fill a large hexagon. Each time a partner set down a shape, they were to name it. The partner to place the last polygon was the winner, but the students also work together to fill the shape.
