Reflection: Routines and Procedures Quadrilateral Properties & Attributes - Section 2: Guided Practice


Creating a learning community where students consistently participate in dialogue is essential. It is my goal to helps students develop these skills through out the year.  At this time of the year, I provide students with very little support about how to engage in mathematical discussions with their peers because I am gradually releasing the support.

I think it is really important during geometry lessons and activities for students to engage in conversations and debates.  As adults, we often take these definitions as "common knowledge" students at this age are working on learning these terms and learning how the compare with one another all at the same time.  Students need the opportunity to discuss and understand the nuances that make each definition different.

Quadrilateral Properties & Attributes

Unit 5: Shapes & Their Attributes (Geometry)
Lesson 9 of 10

Objective: SWBAT sort a variety of quadrilaterals to develop the hierarchy for quadrilaterals using properties and attributes.

Big Idea: Students explore quadrilaterals to develop an understanding of the hierarchy for categorizing.
