This was an activity I used for my geometry lesson. It is a fun, engaging and interactive lesson where your students need to search their surroundings to locate different and identify quadrilaterals, then measure and calculate the area and perimeter. This is a multifaceted activity that infuses geometry, measurement and calculations into one lesson.

I often assigned this activity in pairs to encourage mathematical talk. Furthermore, if it was a nice day I would take the kids outside to hunt for shapes. This activity is a break from math drills and work sheets, and allows students to get hands on and engage with the geometric concepts.

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.
