Shapes - Quadrilaterals (Grade 3)
Videos and lessons to help Grade 3 students learn to 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.
Common Core: 3.G.1
Suggested Learning Targets
- I can use attributes to identify shapes.
- I can use attributes to classify shapes into categories.
- I can define quadrilaterals.
- I can recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as being examples of quadrilaterals.
- I can draw quadrilaterals other than rhombuses, rectangles, and squares.
