Quadrilateral City

Quadrilateral City is a STEAM Project Based Learning (PBL) activity where students are using skills from across the curriculum to design a town square, learn a quadrilateral song, guide book, and present a speech to the city council (your students or another class). Students will use each kind of quadrilateral in their design. Students do need to have prior knowledge of quadrilaterals. Pair up students.

Here are the activities:

¨ Use Google Earth to learn about aerial and street views.

¨ Learn the Quadrilateral Song (based on Starship’s, We Built This City)

¨ Listen to a presentation from a mayor, city council member, or city planner.

¨ Create an aerial map of a city square.

¨ Create an informative guide book to the city square.

¨ Write a persuasive speech on why their design is the best.

¨ Present their speech to a mock city council.

Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.
Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Partition a rectangle into rows and columns of same-size squares and count to find the total number of them.
