This easy-to-use, best-selling packet includes:

  • Quadrilateral Classification Chart
  • Triangle Classification Chart (2 methods: by length of sides and types of angles)
  • Printable Worksheets
  • 5 Quadrilateral Foldables (square, rectangle, rhombus, parallelogram, trapezoid)
  • 6 Triangle Foldables (scalene, isosceles, equilateral, right, acute, obtuse)
  • 4 Other Polygon Foldables (pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon)
  • DIGITAL version of Classification Activities for Google Classroom
  • Reference Cards for Student Notebooks
  • Suggested Uses and Photo Examples

These printable foldables are a wonderful way to reach all levels of learners.

Students simply cut on solid lines and fold on dotted lines. Fill in information (types of angles and sides) on inside of each figure. Color outside front, if desired, and label each foldable with its correct name (octagon, trapezoid, equilateral triangle, etc.).

There are many options for use:

Have students complete and paste into math journals.

Enlarge and create an interactive bulletin board in your classroom.

Have students create posters and display in your building.

Aligned to:

CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.B.3 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.

CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.B.4 Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.
Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
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.
