Students will begin unit on quadrilaterals with basic overview of characteristics of parallelograms, rectangles, squares, rhombi, and isosceles and non-isosceles trapezoids. After the word wall is made, the teacher can use interactive websites to reinforce concepts.
Primary Learning Objective(s):
Students will understand and compare characteristics of quadrilaterals.
Additional Learning Objective(s):
31 to 60 Minutes
Materials and Resources:
card stock strips or sentence strips, markers, wide tape
Technology Resources Needed:
websites, interactive whiteboard and/or projector
The teacher will need sentence strips or card stock with the following printed on them:
