Monday Math Freebies - Geometry Fortune Teller

This week's freebie is a fortune teller for reviewing geometry concepts. The file includes a pre-made fortune teller, a blank template, and directions for assembly.
Download Geometry Fortune Teller. If you like this activity, leave me a note and let me know. I'd like to make some that are a bit more focused, with specific topics like triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, and 3-D shapes. I also think these would be fun for working with concepts related to measurement.
