Come join in on the fun at Camp Quadrilaterals as the campers sing around the campfire to their favorite shapes song.
Then join us as we do arts and crafts that help remind us of our favorite 4-sided shapes; squares, rectangles, rhombuses, trapezoids, and parallelograms are all a part of the fun! Finally, stare at the stars as constellations help reinforce the mathematical fact that there are 360 degrees in every quadrilateral.
If you like our math joke located on the top right of this page, scroll down and steal it! We made it easy for you. (and, of course, you have our permission)
Parallelograms have two sets of parallel lines.
Trapezoids only have one set at a time.
A rectangle has four right angles.
A rhombus has four sides that are equal.
Squares have four equal sides and four equal angles.
Quadrilaterals have four sides and four angles:
parallelograms, rhombuses, trapezoids, squares, and rectangles.
And if you add the angles inside each of these,
there will be three hundred sixty degrees
If you are interested in getting ideas on how to plan a robust standards-aligned Quadrilaterals lesson, we recommend checking out Instructure's recommendations for common core standards 3.G.1/a>, and 4.G.2 . These pages help break down standard language, lay out the grade-appropriate level of rigor for each concept, and offer a variety of suggestions for activities (lesson seeds) that help students achieve their learning targets.
