This activity sheet gives students images of each of the six main types of quadrilaterals and asks them to apply their mathematical knowledge to explain how they know which type of quadrilateral it is. Quadrilaterals Prove It! requires students to articulate their knowledge of quadrilateral properties as they justify their selections with “proof” such as the quadrilateral’s right angles, congruent angles, congruent sides, sets of parallel lines, etc.
Activity can be used in a variety of ways, including an activity in guided math stations, homework assignment, or as an assessment. Answer key and rubric provided!
