Students struggle with memorizing the characteristics of polygons and let's face it, it's not fun. This Quadrilateral Mobile Project is a great way to make it fun. The mobile will not only layout the relationships visually, but also provides the characteristics for each shape. Some students may even need a reminder of what the shape even looks like.
This is a week long project in my class because I have my students research a list of quadrilaterals using Chromebooks. You can just as easily teach the same material and have students create each shape along the way. You can make this as short or long as a project as you need.
The Quadrilateral Mobile Project is large and will not fit into a notebook for study. I select a few of the exceptional mobiles to hang in my room. We reference the relationships and characteristics during class discussion. Some students even examine them while working on independent and group work.
