Let’s focus on the foursided polygons. Polygons are closed shapes with sides that are line segments. Foursided polygons are called quadrilaterals. These quadrilaterals can have more than one attribute. Here you will learn about the names of these shapes and their attributes. Some quadrilaterals can have more than one name. Let’s color code them. You will need different colored markers, pens, pencils, or crayons for this activity.
Color code the quadrilaterals
All polygons that are this shape  Have these attributes  Add colored line to the shape 

Quadrilateral 

blue 
Trapezoid 
OR
(Which definition did you use? How did that affect which shapes get colored green?) 
green 
Parallelogram 

yellow 
Rectangle 

orange 
Square 

red 
Rhombus 

purple 
Kite 

black 
Answer
Now sort the shapes by color.
 All shapes with blue lines are quadrilaterals. This includes all 4 sided shapes on the list.
 All shapes with purple lines are rhombus. This includes squares.
Try using the color codes to make mathematical statements like:
 A parallelogram (blue yellow) with right angles is a rectangle (blue yellow orange).
 A rectangle (blue yellow orange) with four sides of equal length is a square (blue yellow orange and red).
