Geometry Printable #3 & Giveaway

My students have no trouble telling me which polygons are congruent.  What they do struggle with is using geometry words to describe why.  Here is an activity that I have used with my students to encourage their writing in math.  Click here to download a copy of Congruent Polygons.

I expected my students to fill out the bottom of this sheet independently far too soon in my unit.  I needed to model with some and allow partners with others.  I was surprised how few used the anchor chart hanging in the room or the glossary in the back of the math book.

Sometimes struggling through an activity like this with my students teaches me more than it does them.

Classifying Quadrilaterals is one of my bestselling items in my Teachers Pay Teachers and Teacher's Notebook stores.
