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.
