Quadrilateral Mania:Whether you are first introducing quadrilaterals as part of a geometry unit, teaching a unit on area and perimeter, discussing interior angle measures, doing tessellations, or delving into symmetry and transformations, building a solid foundational understanding of the different types of quadrilaterals and their properties is a vital first step.

8 geometry activities to provide students with multiple exposures to geometry vocabulary (focuses mainly on angles, triangles, and quadrilaterals) Use the vocabulary activities in whole group, small group, partners, class games, and independent--and for assessments of students' vocab mastery 3GA1 4GA1, 4GA2, 4GA3 5GB3
Geometry Cut and Paste - Math Common Core Standards 3rd, 4th, & 5th
This is the vocabulary my students needed (but were missing) to describe the differences between quadrilaterals. The quadrilateral cut and paste activity really required students to wrestle with the definitions. The activity supports CCSS.Math.3.G.A.1 Understand that shapes in different categories may share attributes, and that the shared attributes can define a larger category. Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals.
