## Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Congruent Figures - Section 2: Skill Building/Exploration

It is very important to give students a hands-on experience.  As teachers, we can tell the students that shapes are congruent if they are the same shape and size.  However, it is much more meaningful, and the students get a much better understanding when they measure the shapes to find out if they are the same size.

Because of the Common Core State Standards, I have learned to create activities that the students can enjoy and learn the meaning of the concepts.
