These activities provide support for students while exploring the hierarchy of 2 dimensional shapes (quadrilaterals).
Foldable - Students identify properties of parallelograms, squares, rectangles, trapezoids, rhombuses, and kites. Then they draw 2 dimensional shapes that match the criteria.
Hierarchy - Classify shapes into a hierarchy based on characteristics of each shape.
Activity Sheet - Evaluate statements "A trapezoid is always a quadrilateral" (true) or "A rectangle is always a square" (false)

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.
