Students need practice classifying quadrilaterals. My Sort and Solve activities are the perfect solution. These engaging sorts give students an opportunity to look at multiple quadrilaterals and sort them according to attributes. Sort 1 has students sort parallelograms. Sort 2 has students sort the quadrilaterals that have right angles. Sort 3 has them classify quadrilaterals by parallel lines - one set or two sets. Sort 4 has students sort quadrilaterals to identify all of the rectangles. Sort 5 has students sort quadrilaterals to identify all of the rhombuses. Sort 6 has quadrilaterals with and without lines of symmetry. All 6 options include two problems to solve on the back of the sort based on the skill. These are higher level rigorous questions that require students to defend and justify their answers. An Answer Key is provided.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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.
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.
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.
Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
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.
