### Description

Click here for another awesome dollar deal! Looking for an engaging, hands-on activity to learn about classifying quadrilaterals? This geometry resource includes student-centered quadrilaterals activities to explore quadrilateral attributes in a fun way! These activities are perfect for centers, small group work, or whole class instruction.

Your students will explore the attributes of quadrilaterals through sorting activities, and keep track of their learning with reference pages and note catchers. These activities help students think critically about the attributes of quadrilaterals before learning about classifying quadrilaterals in a hierarchy based on properties.

This product includes:

• 30 quadrilateral cards for sorting (with numbers and pictures)
• Graphic organizers for sorting
• Differentiated note catchers
• Sorting mats for math centers
• Vocabulary posters to support student understanding
• Teaching notes

Your students will enjoy learning about the attributes of quadrilaterals through sorts! They will be thinking deeply about the shapes, engaging in mathematical discussions, and exploring the hierarchy of the shapes.

This low prep resource can be ready in a jif! You'll just need to print and cut enough quadrilateral card sets for your class, and make sure that they all have a recording page.

### Standards

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.
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.
