This 7-Day 5th Grade Math Unit covers Classifying two-dimensional figures and is aligned with the Common Core Standards. This unit was developed to meet the standards 5.G.B.3, and 5.G.B.4, which covers all concepts related to Classifying two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties.
This unit will focus on learning and mastering how to classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties. In this unit students will begin to understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. Finally, students will classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties. Hands on Lessons and daily worksheets will provide students with practice opportunities that can be used in small group, as independent practice, or homework.

Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
