Classifying polygons with math foldables is one of the best ways to help students better understand the properties of different polygons. By using 2-dimensional shape foldable in interactive notebooks or even on a piece of poster paper, students have a hands-on opportunity to explore the characteristics of each shape. In my book, hands-on = deeper levels of learning.
How I Taught Classifying Polygons with Math Foldables:
- True or False: All parallelograms are rectangles.
- True or False: All rectangles are parallelograms.
- True or False: All squares are rectangles.
- True or False: All rectangles are squares.
My 2-Dimensional Shape Foldable Fun Packet can be found in my TPT store. Your students will love this engaging activity, and you will be amazed at the higher level of student mastery. Classifying polygons with math foldables really makes a difference!
