Great job! You just drew your first shape in Python with Turtle! Now let’s slightly change the code we already wrote to draw a square to instead draw a hexagon. Alex is a bee, after all, and he needs to draw hexagons to build his first honeycomb.

To help you draw a hexagon, think of how many sides a hexagon has. How many degrees are in each interior angle of a hexagon?

Hint:

Remember that in any shape, all the interior angles add up to 360°. For example, there are 4 sides in a square, so each interior angle of a square is 360 ÷ 4 = 90°.

Show answer:

As a hexagon have 6 sides, each interior angle of a hexagon is 360 ÷ 6 = 60°.

As a helpful reminder, this is the code that was used to create a triangle:
