In this lesson, students build various polygons as they name them based on attributes. Using uncooked spaghetti of various lengths, they build a triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, and hexagon, adding another piece of spaghetti for each construction. They then identify a collection of various polygons, both exemplars and variants of shapes (as shown below), including those with sides of unequal length.
