For my featured product today, I would like to highlight my Christmas Quadrilateral Puzzle.


I just finished my unit on quadrilaterals with my Geometry Honors class.  Since we are all getting restless and ready for Christmas vacation, I decided what better to do than to create a review puzzle.  This puzzle contains 17 review questions about the properties of quadrilaterals.  For example, students need to know things such as: there are 90 degrees in each angle of a square, the diagonals of a rectangle are congruent, and that opposite angles of a parallelogram are congruent.  After the students solve the puzzle, they can match their solutions to a letter to solve a funny Christmas joke.

Geometry Quadrilateral Christmas Puzzle

My students tried this puzzle last week - it was a big hit and they even thought my joke was a little bit funny ;)

As a thank you for participating in our blog hop today, I will randomly choose one person who makes a comment on this blog entry to receive one item of their choosing from my store.  Share something you are doing in classroom to combat the before Christmas craziness! Blog comments will close midnight on Sunday.  I will choose the winner on Monday - please return to my blog on Monday so you can find out who won and claim your prize.

From, here, you should hop on over to:


Hope you all have a nice day!

  1. Thanks for the shout out! Love the puzzle and think maybe some of my early finishers could attempt it.

    Before the holidays for my classroom I do a lot of station work. In a 45 min class they do a 5 min Bellringer, 2 stations for 15 min each, and then wrap-up/clean-up at the end. Then over the course of three days they have reviewed 6 different topics and gone to every center.

    I make a sent students come in for tutoring and work together to make up centers. Maybe I should blog about this....

  2. Thank you so much for organizing the blog hop! I had a lot of fun participating - it is so nice to be a part of a group, even if it is a virtual group. I can't wait to do it again soon!

  3. Math could be difficult but with high school math/high school mathematics tutoring, they help you learn more and understand better.
