Investigating Special Quadrilaterals

Unit 2: Introducing Geometry
Lesson 4 of 8

Objective: Students will be able to investigate features of special quadrilaterals (angles, sides, diagonals, symmetries) and list the properties of these special quadrilaterals.

Big Idea: In this hands-on investigation, students will explore properties of special quadrilaterals and ultimately come up with a minimal defining list to differentiate them from one another.
