Geometers hit the town to examine signs and analyze their geometric shape attributes. First, review these concepts using the linked podcast and assess comprehension with the interactive shape attribute tool, also an online link. As you project these, scholars can take notes and draw the shapes. Be sure to cover shape identification as well as sides, vertices, angles, and symmetry. Give scholars guided practice with the attached worksheet, which has them find shapes in photographs. Finally, small groups search around town with digital cameras (or online if a field trip isn't feasible) to find their assigned shape(s), which they present to the class later in a slide show. The example link in the extension ideas doesn't work.
