These activities provide support for students while exploring the hierarchy of 2 dimensional shapes (quadrilaterals). Students interact with Google slides using movable pieces, text boxes, and drawing tools. Differentiation options are provided. Please see the preview for specific examples of this digital resource.
Students identify properties of parallelograms, squares, rectangles, trapezoids, rhombuses, and kites. Then they draw or select 2 dimensional shapes that match the criteria.
Hierarchy - Classify shapes into a hierarchy based on characteristics of each shape. Students identify the name of the shape and provide examples to complete the hierarchy.
Evaluate statements such as "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.
