What educators are saying

The sort format was super helpful in identifying misconceptions and mastered concepts. Also really appreciated the different printing options. Thanks for creating this and sharing it.
Another great resource. My student struggled to give shapes more than one name. This was a great way for her to practice this skill.

Three Versions of Classify It Based on Trapezoid Definitions

Did you know there are three different definitions of a trapezoid, and all of them are accepted depending on where you live? American English accepts two definitions, the inclusive and exclusive definitions. The British English definition of a trapezoid is completely different, and a 4-sided figure with one set of opposite sides parallel is called a trapezium. Classify It now includes THREE different variations of the product, one for each definition. No matter which definition you teach, you'll be covered!

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.
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.
