This simple sort helps students understand that quadrilaterals are shapes with four sides and shapes that do not have 4 sides are not quadrilaterals. I use these types of activities with my students frequently for my visual and kinesthetic learners who need to "do something" with the vocabulary words to imprint it on their brains! :)
Common Core Standards:
2.G.1 Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces.1 Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes
3.G.1 Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
I started making fun math materials for my own kiddos to supplement our current math adoption. I am excited to be able to share these things with you for very reasonable prices! Thank you for your interest in my Teachers Notebook store!
