# Shape Riddles

Subject: Math

Lesson Length: 35 - 45 mins

Topic: Geometry

Standards / Framework:

Brief Description: In this lesson, students will craft riddles to describe 2D shapes based on their points, angles, and lines.

Know Before You Start: Students should be familiar with: points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines.

Hook:

• Read and discuss the sample comic.
• Which possible 2D shapes could be described by the riddle?

Activity:

• Have students choose from a variety of 2D shapes.
• Using the sample comic as a guide, have students create a two-to-four-panel “Riddle Comic” describing their shape.
• The comic should ask the reader to guess what shape they are describing based on its points, lines, and angles.
• Students should use the framework provided by the sample comic e.g., “I’m thinking of a shape… It has _. What shape could I be thinking of?”

Closure:

• Is the riddle correct?
• Are there any other clues their partner could have used?

Differentiation:

• Allow students to use the speech-to-text feature.
• Allow students to use the voiceover feature to read their comics aloud.
• Assign specific 2D shapes to students as needed.
• Allow students to work in pairs or groups as needed.

Resources:

• Comic to print or display
