5 Introduction Internet Activities Quadrilaterals Conclusion/Extensions Student Worksheet

6 This topic splash activity is designed to introduce you to quadrilaterals. You will be introduced to three different types of four- sided polygons, rectangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids. You will search the internet to complete the worksheet and answer questions based on each one of these quadrilaterals. You will then work in groups and create your own quadrilateral using the internet.

7 Floor Tiles

8 Rectangle Quadrilaterals - Square, Rectangle, Rhombus, Trapezoid, Parallelogram Quadrilaterals - Square, Rectangle, Rhombus, Trapezoid, Parallelogram Isosceles Trapezoid Complete the Quadrilateral Worksheet. To find the properties and definition of a rectangle, rhombus, and parallelogram, visit these websites.Quadrilateral Worksheet Before doing this, visit the Floor Tiles website.

9 You will now be able to connect your knowledge of angles, lines, and congruency to many different polygons, now including quadrilaterals. Discussion of the importance of knowing the characteristics of different types of quadrilaterals. To learn more about properties of quadrilaterals, visit these websites: Polygons - Quadrilaterals - First Glance The Quadrilateral Family Figures and polygons

10 1. Chart 2. A rectangle has ___ pairs of parallel sides, ___ pairs of equal sides, and ___ right angles. Can you create a rectangle using the Floor Tiles Activity? Using the information button, can you show that what you made is a rectangle? Show that you have the necessary characteristics of a rectangle. Show and explain your work. 3. A rhombus has ___ pairs of parallel sides, ___ equal sides, and ___ pairs of congruent angles. Can you create a rhombus with the Floor Tiles Activity? Using the information button, can you show that what you made is a rhombus? Show that you have the necessary characteristics of a rhombus. Show and explain your work. 4. An isosceles trapezoid has ___ pairs of parallel sides, ___ equal sides, and ___ pairs of congruent angles. Can you create an isosceles trapezoid with the Floor Tiles Activity? Using the information button, can you show that what you created is an isosceles trapezoid. Show and explain your work.
