## 2d Shapes

Activities to help students develop an understanding of the attributes 2d shapes and practice those concepts.

Understanding Squares
Students complete 2 pages of activities that help them build an understanding of the properties of squares.

Understanding Rectangles
Students complete 2 pages of activities that help them build an understanding of the properties of rectangles.

Understanding Trapezoids
Students complete 2 pages of activities that help them build an understanding of the properties of trapezoids.

Understanding Parallelograms
Students complete 2 pages of activities that help them build an understanding of the properties of parallelograms.

Understanding Rhombuses
Students complete 2 pages of activities that help them build an understanding of the properties of rhombuses.

A 10 question assessment of quadrilaterals and their properties.

Students complete a maze by shading in all of the squares.

Students complete a maze by shading in all of the rectangles. Students must understand the attributes of a rectangle (and know that squares are considered rectangles).

Students complete a maze by shading in all of the parallelograms. Students must understand the attributes of a parallelogram (and know that squares, rectangles, and rhombuses are all considered rectangles).

Students complete a maze by shading in all of the rhombuses. Students must understand the attributes of a rhombus (and know that squares are considered rhombuses).

Students complete a maze by shading in all of the trapezoids. Students must understand the attributes of a trapezoid (a trapezoid has exactly one set of parallel sides).

Students sort attributes and examples of quadrilaterals into 5 groups (squares, rectangles, parallelograms, rhombuses, and trapezoids). This require a small amount of prep – cutting out the cards to sort.

Quadrilateral 4 In a Row Game
A two player game. Students need a pencil and paper clip (to create a spinner), crayons, and the game board. Players use the spinner to figure out what type of shape they will color in on the game board. The first person to color in 4 shapes in a row wins.

Students create a drawing using only quadrilaterals.
