What better way to teach 2-dimensional shapes and figures than with geometric foldables? A perfect companion for interactive notebooks!
Looking for a great hands-on way to explore and learn more about the categories and characteristics of two-dimensional figures? This set of foldables is perfect for you and your students!
Included in packet:
Triangle Chart (organized in 2 ways: by length of sides and types of angles)
5 Quadrilateral Foldables (square, rectangle, rhombus, parallelogram, trapezoid)
6 Triangle Foldables (scalene, isosceles, equilateral, right, acute, obtuse)
4 Other Polygon Foldables (pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon)
Suggested Uses and Teaching Ideas
These foldables are a wonderful way to reach all levels of learners.
Students simply cut on solid lines and fold on dotted lines. Fill in information (types of angles and sides) on inside of each figure. Color outside front, if desired, and label each foldable with its correct name (octogan, trapezoid, equilateral triangle, etc.).
Options for use are many!
Have students complete and paste into math journals.
Enlarge and create an interactive bulletin board in your classroom.
Have students create posters and display in your building.
CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.B.3 Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.B.4 Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.
