|The Magical Minds||
After learning the Polygon Song during our class meeting, Mr. H invited the Magical Minds to create a list of the most common polygons. He started with a common definition of a polygon: "A shape having three or more straight sides." Then the students were asked to use the song to figure out the names of 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 sided polygons. We placed drawings around the room of the different kinds of shapes, and students did their best to draw these complex shapes.
