There are many different kinds of quadrilaterals
There are many different kinds of quadrilaterals. All of them have certain things in common. But most importantly they all have four sides!

A quadrilateral that has at least one pair of parallel sides.
Trapezoid: A quadrilateral that has at least one pair of parallel sides.

This shape is also a trapezoid.
Parallelogram: Opposite sides are parallel and of equal length. The opposite angles are equal. This shape is also a trapezoid.

(It is also a parallelogram AND a trapezoid!)
Rhombus: This parallelogram has four equal sides, but does not have four right angles. (It is also a parallelogram AND a trapezoid!)

Rectangle: Has two parallel pairs of lines and four right angles.
(It is also a parallelogram AND a trapezoid.)

(It is also a parallelogram, a trapezoid, AND a rectangle!)
Square: Has two parallel pairs of lines, four right angles, and all four sides are equal in length. (It is also a parallelogram, a trapezoid, AND a rectangle!)

Triangles

Equilateral Triangle:
All three sides are equal. Each angle is equal to 60°. Also called an acute-angled triangle.

It has a right angle (90°) in one of its corners.
Right Triangle: It has a right angle (90°) in one of its corners.

Only two sides have the same length. Two angles are equal.
Isosceles Triangle: Only two sides have the same length. Two angles are equal.

Each side is a different length. None of the angles are equal.
Scalene Triangle: Each side is a different length. None of the angles are equal.
