Steps To Draw A Pentagon
Here is a brief preview of today’s tutorial, as shown in the image below. Follow the steps provided to easily draw a pentagon.
Draw Circle Roughly
We begin by drawing a perfect circle roughly as shown in the image above. You can use a compass or any circular object to draw the circle. Use a pencil to draw these rough lines.
Draw First Side
Next, draw one straight line inside the circle at the bottom to create the first side of the pentagon, as shown in the drawing above. Use a pen or marker to draw this part accurately.
Draw Second Side
Now, once again use the protractor to construct a 108° angle arc and extend the straight line as depicted in the image above. Ensure accuracy in drawing this part.
Draw Third Side
Now, once again use the protractor to construct a 108° angle arc and extend the straight line to draw the third side of the pentagon, as depicted in the image above. Ensure accuracy in drawing this part.
Draw Fourth Side
Similarly, now again repeat the previous step to draw the fourth side, as shown in the image above. Ensure accuracy in drawing this part.
Draw Fifth Side
Once more repeat the same step 3 for the last time to draw the fifth side of the pentagon. Remember, a pentagon has five sides, so ensure that you draw exactly five sides and not more than that.
Erase Rough Lines
Lastly, erase the outer lines (circle), and you have completed drawing the pentagon using a protractor and ruler.
Colouring a Pentagon
After the drawing of a pentagon is completed we move forward with coloring the pentagon. As pentagon is already a shape we just need an outline. Thus, skip coloring part.
