This podcast is based on a section of Shape UP! Fun With Triangles and Other Polygons written by David A. Adler. Students use slices of bread to make polygons, ranging from quadrilaterals to decagons. A review of the names of the polygons is included. It is designed to be viewed after the book is read to students and before they begin the hands-on activity.
