Students learn how to identify and describe the different parts of a circle using the correct vocabulary

Later, as learning progresses they learn how to construct circular shapes to scale.

A fully diferentiated worksheet is included with this lesson.**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to identify and construct the radius, diameter, circumference and area of a circle.
- Most students should be able to identify and construct a radius, diameter, circumference, area, chord, tangent and arc.
- Some students should be able to construct circular shapes using the appropriate terminology and investigate basic circle properties.
