Model
1. Provide students with geoboards and rubber bands. Explain to students that they will recreate the polygon you have on your geoboard using only what they see presented to them through the Zoomy.

2. Set up a simple triangle on your geoboard, keeping it hidden from students view.

3. Place the Zoomy
lens over the rubber
band and tell the
students to watch
carefully as you
begin traveling
along the rubber
band.

4. Have the
students verbally
identify angles,
vertices, and line
segments as they
are displayed.
Guide
5. After completing
a trip over the
entire perimeter of
the triangle have
students try to
recreat the same
triangle on their
geobaords.

6. Repeat the
activity using
various other polygons. Then have pairs of students repeat the activity with each other.
Assess
7. As ongoing assessment for the group, have students hold up geoboards to determine which students are accurately identifying and recreating shapes. Have pairs of students self-assess as they work together.
Extend
8. Have students practice saying and spelling the names of the polygons created on the geoboards.
