Activity Overview

A Frayer Model is a graphic organizer divided into five parts. The word or concept is in the middle, and there are four boxes around that word or concept. Typically, they include a section for examples and non examples of the concept. In this activity, students will create a frayer model for polygons. This can be done individually or as a group, where students help fill in each section. They will review what a polygon is, what it isn't, and show examples from the "Shapes" category of the Storyboard Creator! It can even be modified and printed for students to fill out with a pencil.

Lesson Plan Reference

Common Core Standards
  • [Math/Content/2/G/A/1] Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces.1 Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
  • [Math/Content/3/G/A/1] Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
