This morning the children continued exploring polygons and their attributes.  They enjoyed listening to two songs that we watched on YouTube at the start of our working period.  Their task today was to create a polygon with more than 4 sides and draw it onto their geoboard paper.  Once they completed this part, they then had to describe their polygon using mathematical language.  It was exciting to see how the children were challenging themselves to make polygons with as many sides as they could make.  We went from the maximum sides of 14 all the way to a polygon that has 21 sides!  Below are some on the polygons that the children created.  Can you use some mathematical language to describe what you see?
