Triangle Fun

Sorting Triangles
The girls wrote each kind of triangle on a slip of paper and then they raced to sort different triangles into the right category.
Here are some silly ways we used to help them
remember each kind of triangle.
My daughter loved figuring out the missing angle measurement so all three angles added together were equal to 180 degrees. She didn't want to stop so she kept making up new triangle measurements even after she had completed all the ones in the book.

Triangle Hunt—Put these labels on the wall (Right, Isosceles, Scalene, and Equilateral). Cut out four of each kind on different colors of paper. Then hide them around the house. Let the children hunt for them and tape them on the wall under the correct label.
