Many of my students had a difficult time understanding that a square is a parallelogram but a parallelogram isn't a square, etc. These cards have worked really well in helping them understand how shapes are categorized and how they can share attributes and properties.
They are very simple - Smaller cards share the attributes of all larger cards they fit into. There are two styles included - one set has the definitions and examples of the shapes. The other set only has the definitions and has a place for students to draw in their own shapes. this makes it easy of you to differentiate for your students within the same activity.
This activity includes simple definations for polygon, quadrilateral, square, parallelogram, rectangle, trapezoid, and rhombus.
You can use these a reference tool / graphic organizer to help your student understand that these shapes share attributes or properties.
These would also work as interactive notebook pages.
