Reflection: Relevance Types of Polygons - Section 2: Practice


The graphic organizer utilized in this lesson is quite simple yet it serves its purpose.  I think that is really the point when using a graphic organizer, it makes a presenting information much easier. 

Although this graphic organizer is quite simple, in this lesson it works perfectly for sorting shapes based on one attribute.  By starting my classifying lessons at this level(one attribute) I think I was able to depend students understanding of what it means to classify things.  My hope is that when they have to sort shapes using two attributes, the ground work I laid today will help build a path to a deeper understanding.
