This Polygon Property Pictures pack contains display and activity resources to support the exploration of the different angles and lines found in polygons. The pictures have been carefully created to enable children to identify these properties and are featured in the pirate video adventure entitled Polygon Properties Picture Prize on the Number Fun Teacher Portal.
This pack contains:
Display Resources: Pages 2 – 28: Polygon Properties Pictures for Display including definitions for the different types of Lines and Angles found within the pictures.
Fact Cards: Pages 29-37: Three versions (see ideas below)
Sorting Cards: Pages 38 – 39: Images for sorting.
Ideas for Use: (Full instructions on Page 2 of the document)
1) Display Resources are designed to provide the basis for a class display that helps children explore the properties of polygons. Print the pages to the required size (A5/A4/A3). 2 versions are provided so a cover and reveal display can be created.
2) Fact Cards Set A: Blank – can be used as a worksheet. Children explore the pictures using a protractor and complete the check list on each card.
Set B: Properties – here the properties are listed and children can record on the card.
Set C: Complete – both the properties are listed and the graphic shows their location. Sets B and C are ideal for use as trading and reasoning cards. These can then be checked against the video on the Number Fun Portal
3) Pages 38 and 39 are designed to enable children to sort the pictures according to their properties. They can be sorted into two groups or used as the basis for a data handling activity that might involve Venn or Carroll diagrams.
