This is a powerpoint that I quickly made to teacher my 3rd graders what a parallelogram is.
Included in the powerpoint is a cut, sort, and glue activity with shapes that are considered parallelograms and not parallelograms. (I think teach this shape before rect, squares, and rhombuses)
Slides 1-3 are meant to be used whole class and the last two slides are meant for independent work.
(I also have uploaded a gen. ed and modified homework to supplement this lesson)
