I used this book in a first grade classroom to help the students understand the concept of a polygon. The polygon activity in the book was a fun hands on activity for the students to do in the classroom which allowed them to not only undestand the attributes of different polygons but allowed them to play with food as well. The students enjoyed making the shapes and eating the bread throughout the activity.
