Here are some useful ideas that can help students be successful in memorizing and understanding the meaning of these words.
Have students review the lesson about the different types of triangles. They may not need everything in that lesson to answer the questions in this worksheet. Nonetheless, it will strengthen their vocabulary a lot. It may be useful to print the following table found in that lesson and give it to the students!
Have students now answer the questions. Tell them that each word can only be used once.
Then, after students are done answering the questions on the worksheet, have them exchange papers so that they can get feedback from their peers.
Here is how to check if they finally know the meaning of the twelve words above.
Take the triangle vocabulary worksheet away from them. Pick a word from the list, tell it to them, and have them explain the meaning of the word.
