**Subject: Math**

**Lesson Length: 35 - 45 mins**

**Topic: Geometry**

**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.
- What possible 2D shapes could be described by the riddle?

**Activity:**
It’s time for students to create their own shape riddles!

- 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:**
Have students work in pairs to solve one another’s riddles.

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

**Differentiation:**

- Assign specific 2D shapes to students as necessary.
- Have students complete the “Riddle Comic” with a partner if helpful.
