Our Similar and Congruent Figures lesson plan teaches students how to determine if a figure is similar or congruent.  During this lesson, students are asked to create a creative poster in which they draw or paste pictures that have similar and congruent shapes in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson material and vocabulary.
