Build a Polygon
Geometry has never been so engaging! In this activity, players will practice drawing shapes, measuring, and finding perimeter. The goal is to create as many polygons as possible, and it's trickier than it sounds! You will use a deck of cards to determine the length of the lines you will draw. Hope for the best, because your lines will need to connect almost perfectly in order for you to close off your polygon. If you don't get the number you want, don't worry! Draw your line in a different direction and wait for your next turn.
Terms to Know:
polygon: a closed plane figure bound by straight sides
perimeter: the distance around a two-dimensional shape
