Making Shapes

For this work the students create the shapes and learn how many sides each shape has by placing the popsicle sticks on the lines of the shapes.  Each shape is a different color and they have matching sticks.  The hexagon is red and their are 6 red sticks.  The shapes that are included in this work are triangle, square, diamond, pentagon, and hexagon.  Colored match sticks could be used so that you are able to fit shapes with more sides on the paper.  I was only able to go up to a hexagon because an octagon wouldn't fit on the paper.
