What is a quadrilateral?....................................................Here are a few helpful videos to remind you about the characteristics of different quadrilaterals.Please follow along with the words and motions. It will help you remember how the shapes are different!

1. All quadrilaterals have 4 sides and 4 angles.2. Squares and rectangles are the only quadrilaterals that have 4 right angles.3. Trapezoids don't have any right angles but they do have 1 pair of parallel sides.4. The only difference between a rhombus and a parallelogram is that a parallelogram has 2 sets of congruent sides and a rhombus has 4 sides that are congruent.

Classifying Quadrilaterals

Many quadrilaterals have similar characteristics. Study the picutre above. Do you see how the shapes are related?1. A squares is also classified as rectangle, rhombus, and parallelogram.2. A rhombus is also classified as a parallelogram.3. A trapezoid does not share characteristics with a parallelogram, rectangle, rhombus, or square outside of having 4 sides and angles

Relationship

Your paragraph here

Rectangles, Rhombi, and Squares are all parallelograms, but they all have their own specials features. Can you list all of their special characteristics?

All squares are parallelograms, BUT not all parallelogram are squares. Can you explain this statement?
