Quadrilaterals are about to get a whole lot more exciting with these classifying and labeling activities. Share your work with classmates to see if you can classify each shape!
This class will meet on Tuesday 12-3pm EST on August 3. Quadrilaterals are about3 / 31August 3, 2021August 3, 2021
- NGS. MATH 5.G.3 Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. e.g., All rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles. Note: The inclusive definition of a trapezoid will be utilized, which defines a trapezoid as “A quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides.”
- NGS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.4 Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties
1) What does the root “Quad” mean? (use examples like a “quadruplets”)
2) What does the root “lateral” mean? (use examples like a “lateral pass” in football)
3) What is a quadrilateral?
4) What kind of shapes can we make with four lines?
5) What is a square?
6) What is a rectangle?
7) Is a square a rectangle and why or why not?
8) Is a rectangle a square and why or why not?
