Title – Polygon Monster
By – D Heefner
Primary Subject – Math
Secondary Subject – Language Arts Grade Level – 3-4

Objective: Student will demonstrate knowledge of different types of polygons.

Procedure:
Have class discussion and list on board all the different kinds of polygons they have been studying. Tell them they will make a monster using at least one of each of the shapes. Tell the students they must label one of each kind of shape that they use. I do not allow them to draw anything on their finished product. It must be totally constructed.

Materials:
You can use a variety of things, but I have them make it out of construction paper. I offer 8 – 10 colors and they choose 5 plus a background sheet. You also need scissors and a marker for labeling.

Time to do this may vary, but normally we spend 30 minutes at a time over 2 -3 days.

As an extension, we sometimes write stories about our monsters. We then attach the story to the monster and hang them in the hall.
