What Type of Quadrilateral is this?

Do you remember what a quadrilateral is? š¤

A **quadrilateral **is a 4-sided two-dimensional shape.Ā Ā

There are **4 types **of quadrilaterals: parallelograms, trapezoids, rectangles, and rhombuses.

ļø**Parallelograms **are quadrilaterals with **two sets **of parallel sides.

These are all parallelograms:

A **trapezoid **is a quadrilateral with exactly **one pair **of parallel sides.

This is a trapezoid:

A **rectangle **has 4 right angles.

A **rhombus **is a quadrilateral with all 4 sides of the same length.

Let's practice identifying, or spotting, the 4 different types of quadrilaterals.

**What type of quadrilateral is this?**

Great!Ā

We know this is a **rectangle** because it has 4 right angles.

Did you notice the small squares in each of the angles?

**Tip: **Each small square tells us that it's a right angle that measures 90Ā°.

**What type of quadrilateral is this?**

Yes!Ā

A **trapezoid** has only one pair of parallel sides.

What are parallel sides?

**Parallel sides** are lines with the same distance between them but will never intersect at any point.

**What type of quadrilateral is this?**

Thatās right!Ā Ā

This is a **parallelogram** because it has two sets of parallel sides.

Letās try one more. šŗ

**What type of quadrilateral is this?**

Great!Ā

We know this is a **rhombus** because all 4 sides have the same length.

Good job! š
