This resource includes activities to help students build a better understanding of the properties of quadrilaterals. The quadrilaterals practiced in this resource are squares, rectangles, parallelograms, rhombuses, and trapezoids.
Students first review the definitions of right angles, parallel lines, and quadrilaterals. Students must have a solid understanding of this vocabulary in order to understand the properties of quadrilaterals.
Then, students complete activities that help them understand the unique attributes of each quadrilateral (square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus, and trapezoid).
Included in this resource:
1. Math Vocabulary Review: a cut and paste activity to review right angles, a cut and paste activity to review parallel lines, and a maze activity to develop the understanding that quadrilaterals have 4 sides
2. Building Understanding of Quadrilaterals: activities to help students understand the properties of quadrilaterals. Each quadrilateral has 2 pages of activities. The activities build no each other, requiring students to use what they have already learned in order to complete the activities.
3. Review: 2 activities that have students practice what they have learned about all 5 quadrilaterals. Includes a "Find Somebody Who" and an art integration activity.
4. Assessment: Assess what students have learned about squares, rectangles, trapezoids, parallelograms, and rhombuses.
5. Answer Keys and a Grading Rubric
The preview shows everything included in this resource.
These activities can be used as centers, for quadrilateral homework, as an independent activity, small group lesson, or whole group activity in 2nd grade or 3rd grade.
