This Attributes of Shapes Mini-unit includes both print & digital resources that will save you time as you plan your guided math lessons!


Lesson 1 - Attributes of Polygons

Lesson 2 - Attributes of Quadrilaterals

Lesson 3 - Sorting & Classifying Quadrilaterals

Lesson 4 - Attributes of Solid Shapes (3D)

This Mini-Unit is fun, with ample opportunity to sort shapes in an increasing specific manner over the course of the 4 lessons. Two lessons are devoted to quadrilaterals so that students can develop the academic vocabulary needed to discuss attributes of quadrilaterals, compare and contrast quadrilaterals, and sort them based on geometric attributes.

Lesson 4 is a Teks-specific lesson about the attributes of solid shapes, which is highly recommended for Common Core teachers, as well, if you have time to fit it in!

Each lesson includes the following:

  • PowerPoint Lesson: Bright, engaging digital lessons introduce and model each concept, including interactive questions and error analysis tasks to check understanding. (editable text)

  • Math Mat & Task Cards: Task cards guide students through hands-on activities designed to reinforce the concepts introduced in the Mini-Lesson. (editable questions)

  • Practice Pages: Perfect for in-class practice or homework, these activities provide plenty of support, but ask students to start demonstrating their understanding more independently.

  • Exit Tickets provide a brief snapshot of student understanding for you at the end of each math block. (editable text)


  • Quick Check (lessons 1-4 quiz with editable questions)
  • All digital options'

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.
