Copy onto cards the numbers 1-10, one number per card. Shuffle the cards and place them face down in a pile. Label the sections of a spinner "3," "4," "5," "6," "7," "8," "9," "10."
Each group member traces one of the figures shown below onto tracing paper five times. One group member spins the spinner. A second group member takes the number of cards indicated on the spinner and places them face up. Each group member then draws line segments connecting the points shown on the cards to form a polygon. Each group member shares his or her polygon with the other group members and describes it. The other group members should add to the description if necessary.
Repeat the activity, shuffling the cards and trading roles each time.
