In these activities, students will be classifying quadrilaterals.
Here are the different activities found within this flipchart:
Students will learn more information about each quadrilateral by putting their cursor over each example. After they have read the definitions and/or taken notes, they will discuss possible answers to the questions found in the Notes Browser with a partner or as a group.
Students will choose which quadrilaterals from the left hand side should be placed under each type of quadrilateral. Students will click and drag the appropriate quadrilateral to the box under the name. If it is incorrect, the quadrilateral will return to its correct position. Most of the boxes will have more than one example.
Students will locate the rectangles on the page by clicking on the rectangles. If they are correct, the rectangle will disappear. If they are incorrect, they will hear a "boing".
Students will locate the squares on the page by clicking on the squares. If they are correct, the square will disappear. If they are incorrect, they will hear a "boing".
Students will locate the trapezoids on the page by clicking on the trapezoids. If they are correct, the trapezoid will disappear. If they are incorrect, they will hear a "boing".
This flipchart meets these Math Common Core Standards:
CCSS.Math.Content.3.G.A.1 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.
CCSS.Math.Content.4.G.A.2 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
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.
