FREE MISC. LESSON - “Polygons: Math and Literacy Activity”

by Tied 2 Teaching
3rd - 6th Grade

Tie together your math and narrative writing standards with this fun activity that will have kids never forgetting their polygons again! 
I am excited to offer this free product that gives you 10 creative writing prompts for writing about "The Legend of the Decacorn, Nonacorn, Octacorn" and so on. Your students will love this activity and never forget their polygons again. 

My 5th grade students asked me one day what a unicorn with 10 horns was called. Without hesitation I said, “a decacorn of course!” The kids all started laughing and we immediately launched into a review of polygons. The kids were excited to name a 9 horned “unicorn,” a nonacorn, 10 horns, a decacorn and so on. We had been working on our narrative writing so I quickly put together these pages and the kids all chose one they would like to write a story about. All the kids read each other's stories. They were quite creative and none of them will ever forget that a polygon with ten sides is called a decacorn . . . . I mean decagon! I hope you are able to use this simple tool to bring a smile to the face of the kids in your class. It provides a great way to tie together your math and literacy instruction. With so many standards, looking for ways to tie together the curriculum is so important.
