Product Description
I've been teaching Geometry for 20+ years and have always found that students try to rely too heavily on visualization to complete geometry tasks.

When teaching students about the family of quadrilaterals it is very easy for them to pick out scale pictures of the quadrilaterals, but when it came time to identify the quadrilaterals from a description, or to know which properties to look at for proving quadrilaterals one thing or another they struggled.

I came up with this as a worksheet first. Over 40 quadrilaterals that "look" like squares, but based on the markings maybe something else.

The students struggle, but they get to know their quadrilateral properties better.

You could do a quadrilateral of the day, make a memory card game out of them or flash cards, you can give them anything from marshmallows and spaghetti to Knex to actually build the figures based on the markings. I've done a lot with them over the years.
