1. Topic Of Lesson Plan

Classifying Quadrilaterals 


2. Lesson Content

Quadrilaterals, parallelograms, trapezoids, trapeziums, rhombus 


3. Goals And Expectations

1.SWBAT classify quadrilaterals
2.SWBAT classify parallelograms
3.SWBAT explain sum of the angles for a triangle & a quadrilateral. 


4. Objectives

1. Student will cut out 3 different shapes and put them in the right
category ( parallelogram, trapezod, and trapeziums.



5. Materials and Aids

paper, ruler, scissors, tape, math book, white board, 


6. Methods Used and Procedures

A. Introduction
1.Ask students to draw a quadrilateral on their white board.
2. Ask for definition.



B. Development
1. 3 types of quadrilaterals  parallelogram, trapezoid & trapezium.
2.Parallelogram  2 pairs of parallel sides.
3.Trapezoid  has 1 pair of parallel sides.
4. Trapezium  has no parallel sides.
5. Have the students draw each of the quadrilaterals. 


C. Practice
1. Put classifications of Quadrilaterals in Math notebook. Use red
for parallel lines & blue for nonparallel.
2. draw some quadrilaterals on board and pull sticks to have them
label.



D. Independent Practice

E. Accommodations For Students
1. have them create the quadrilaterals with straws to visually see
when the lines are parallel.



F. Checking for understanding
1.white boards
2.walking around checking math notebook ai
3. pulling sticks to label quadrilaterals. 


G. Closure
1. Ask students how all quadrilaterals are alike?  they are foursided
polygons.
2. How are they different?  some have 2 pairs of parallel congruent
lines, some have one 1 pair of parallel lines and some don't have
any. 


7. Evaluation

1. Complete answers from assigned page in textbook.
