by David A. Adler and Nancy Tobin. A clever introduction to geometry encourages readers to use some common household objects as props to define different kinds of triangles, quadrilaterals, and other polygons. All of the concepts are demonstrated using a toothpick, a slice of American cheese, pretzel sticks, a round sheet of paper, a piece of graph paper, and a pencil.

7 Polygons A polygon is a closed flat shape with straight sides. Classify the shapes as a polygon or not a polygon based on the definition and attributes of polygons. Some examples of polygons are triangles, quadrilaterals (squares, rectangles, and trapezoids), pentagons, and octagons. Would a circle be a polygon? Why or why not? 8 Polygon or Not? Classify the shapes as a polygon or not a polygon based on the definition and attributes of polygons. 9 Triangles Triangles are polygons. Triangles have 3 sides and 3 vertices, or corners. 10 Quadrilaterals Quadrilaterals are also polygons.

Great for teaching young children our history. I loved the pics. This is maybe for a child maybe about 4 and older. I just wanted to surround my 2 year old with the info even if he didn't get it yet. We have to teach our children our history because they won't learn it anywhere else and this is a good place to start.

I used this book to develop a third grade social studies lesson plan. It was perfect and would be an excellent addition to a classroom library as well.

This is a great book that teaches about shapes and incorporated angles and lines as well. My students loved it and there is a lot of lessons that you can create from the book so I recommend it as a book to add to your library.
