Lesson Objectives I can identify and sort geometric shapes based on their differences and similarities, and I can explain why. I can draw examples and non-examples of the quadrilaterals covered in this lesson: square, rectangle, rhombus, and parallelogram. I can describe the characteristics of the four quadrilaterals discussed in this lesson: square, rectangle, rhombus, and parallelogram.
Four Main Quadrilaterals Square Rectangle Rhombus Parallelogram
What is a square? A shape with four straight, equal sides and four right angles. What is a right angle? An angle that measures 90 degrees. (hint: the corner of a sheet of notebook paper forms a right angle.)
What is a rectangle? A shape with four straight sides and four right angles. Is a square a rectangle? Is a rectangle a square?
What is a parallelogram? A shape with four straight sides where opposite sides are parallel. What does parallel mean? When two sides are equal distance apart and are going in the same direction, and they will never cross paths. Is a square a parallelogram? a rectangle?
What is a rhombus? A parallelogram with opposite equal acute angles, opposite equal obtuse angles, and four equal sides. What does acute mean? Less than 90 degrees (smaller than a right angle). What does obtuse mean? More than 90 degrees (larger than a right angle). Is a square a rhombus? Is a rhombus a square?
