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.


General Information

Subject Area: Mathematics
Grade: 3
Domain-Subdomain: Geometry
Cluster: Reason with shapes and their attributes. (Supporting Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

    Assessment Limits :
    Shapes may include two-dimensional shapes and the following quadrilaterals: rhombus, rectangle, square, parallelogram, and trapezoid. Items may reference and/or rely on the following attributes: number of sides, number of angles, whether the shape has a right angle, whether the sides are the same length, and whether the sides are straight lines. Items may not use the terms “parallel” or “perpendicular.” Items that include trapezoids must consider both the inclusive and exclusive definitions. Items may not use the term "kite" but may include the figure.

Educational Game

Name Description
Shape & Solid Exploration In this game, learners use clues to identify mystery shapes. Use everyday objects (like from the pantry) as the shapes. It is important for learners to be able to describe a shape with correct math vocabulary and to be able to visualize a shape in their head.

Formative Assessments

Name Description

Name Description
Coding Geometry Challenges #1-7, 14 & 15

This set of geometry challenges focuses on creating a variety of polygons as students problem solve and think as they learn to code using block coding software.  Student will need to use their knowledge of the attributes of polygons and mathematical principals of geometry to accomplish the given challenges. The challenges start out fairly simple and move to more complex situations in which students can explore at their own pace or work as a team. Computer Science standards are seamlessly intertwined with the math standards while providing “Step it up!” and “Jump it up!” opportunities to increase rigor.

 

 

 

Artistic Alley

Students will use their knowledge of how to identify quadrilaterals and how to analyze data to determine a ranking for the best paver designs for a driveway. In this MEA, students will deepen their understanding of the attributes of parallelograms, rectangles, squares, trapezoids and quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these categories.

Model Eliciting Activities, MEAs, are open-ended, interdisciplinary problem-solving activities that are meant to reveal students’ thinking about the concepts embedded in realistic situations. Click here to learn more about MEAs and how they can transform your classroom.

Hoops for Quadrilaterals

This is an interactive lesson that allows students to inquire, learn, and successfully categorize various quadrilaterals. They will love the challenge and have fun working collaboratively in the classroom.

Quadrilateral Quest

In this lesson, students categorize shapes identifying the attributes of quadrilaterals. 

Pretzel Quadrilaterals

This lesson helps students to realize that shapes have identifying attributes that define them. Students should also discover that a shape can have multiple names based on the definitions of that shape.

It's All About the Shapes

The teacher begins the lesson by reading The Greedy Triangle to the class to review shape names and attributes. The students create shapes using geoboards and follow up their exploration with Shape Concentration (a game played with a partner). The teacher gathers the students together (whole group) and completes a large Venn Diagram comparing two different shapes. The students write in their journals observations they discovered during the lesson along with creating four squares in their journals (1st square - write word, 2nd square-write definition including attributes, 3rd square - draw a picture, 4th square - draw an example).

Teaching Ideas

Name Description
Quadrilaterals This interactive Java applet allows users to manipulate a square rectangle into various quadrilaterals. There are four tabs on the site including Learner, Activity, Help, and Instructor tabs. On the Activity tab, users can create various quadrilaterals. An information window provides data about the shape created including side lengths and angles. The Learner and Help tabs provide information about the activity. The Instructor tab has a worksheet on quadrilaterals that contains exploration questions which instructors can use as guiding questions to lead students in comparing/contrasting the similarities and differences between various quadrilaterals. (Users can also explore tessellations made from quadrilaterals on this site. Please note: this is not part of third grade standards.)
An Introduction To Quadrilaterals

This lesson is designed to introduce students to quadrilaterals and the terms and properties associated with quadrilaterals. This lesson provides links to discussions and activities related to quadrilaterals as well as suggested ways to integrate them into the lesson. Finally, the lesson provides links to follow-up lessons designed for use in succession with the current one.
