### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource offers various ways to help your students classify and sort polygons including triangles and quadrilaterals. Several resources are interactive charts students can include in their Math Notebook/Journal as a tool. This enables students to have anchor charts at their fingertips.

The sorts work best if you use manipulatives. If you do not have manipulatves, I have included paper polygons students can cut out.

What this Product Includes:
*Types of Polygons (interactive chart for Math Notebook) Students draw a picture and identify the number of sides and number of angles for each polygon.

*Polygon Sort with 4 Squares (no labels) a sorting mat for any types of polygon you choose. You could use manipulatives or the cut out squares included.

*Polygon Sort with 6 squares

*Polygon Sort with a Venn Diagram

*Polygon Sort with 3 Circles *(I used this to sort polygons with 1 pair, 2 pairs, or No pairs of parallel sides)

*Polygon Sort- Labeled with 1 Pair , 2 Pair, or No Pairs of Parallel sides

*Polygon Sort Cut-Out Shapes- I used manipulatives for all of these activities, but included the cut out shapes with the activities in case you do not have access to manipulatives.

*Classifying Quadrilaterals (Version 1) contains the number of parallel sides, sides of equal length, right angles and give the quadrilateral as many names as possible (ex: polygon, quadrilateral, parallelogram, rectangle, square, etc.)

*Classifying Quadrilaterals (Version 2) Students identify the number of parallel sides, sides of equal length, right angles. Then, students give the quadrilateral as many names as possible (ex: polygon, quadrilateral, parallelogram, rectangle, square, etc.)

*Name that Quadrilateral! Classifying Quadrilaterals (Version 3)- Students identify the number of parallel sides, sides of equal length, right angles. Then, students give the quadrilateral as many names as possible (ex: polygon, quadrilateral, parallelogram, rectangle, square, etc.

*Classifying Quadrilaterals (Anchor Chart for Math Notebook) Completed Chart that describes the characteristics of each type of quadrilateral

*Classifying Quadrilaterals (Anchor Chart for Math Notebook) This chart is for students to describe the quadrilaterals in as many ways as possible (i.e 2 pairs of parallel sides, 2 sides of the same length, etc.) You could also use this chart for students to list all the names of the quadrilaterals.

*Classifying Quadrilaterals (Anchor Chart for Math Notebook) This chart is the same as the one above except without lines.

*Types of Triangles (interactive chart for Math Notebook) Students draw a picture of the 6 types of Triangles
*Talking About Triangles- Students identify the size of the angle, the length of the sides. Then, students give the triangle as many names as possible.
