Description

This Classifying Quadrilaterals activity is the perfect way to begin a unit on classifying polygons. I use this quadrilateral worksheet at the beginning of my geometry unit to help students discover attributes of these 2d shapes before I teach them the quadrilateral hierarchy.

Using this sheet and geoboards or geostix, my students discovered attributes of basic quadrilaterals that they had not known before!

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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.
Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.
