This resource is a set of posters meant to help your kids understand how we classify shapes into categories based on their attributes.
For example - there are triangles that share attributes (three sides and angles), but there are also three different KINDS of triangles (scalene, right, isosceles, and equilateral). Another example might be that that a square can be classified as a rectangle because it has four sides and four right angles.
If you want your students to stop using descriptions like, "stretched out square" to describe a rectangle, and instead use vocabulary like sides, angles, parallel, etc. - this is a wonderful resource.
I have included both a color and black and white copy for easier printing.
