## Step 3 - Instruction

**Lesson will take one-60 minute time period.**

Read/Listen to the following book: __ If You Were a Quadrilateral__.

After listening to the book, have students work with a partner to locate and identify quadrilaterals in classroom. Students should discuss quadrilaterals and characteristics.

Teacher will ask the following questions:

- What is true about all quadrilaterals? (They all have four sides and four angles.)
- How might quadrilaterals be different? (Possible answer: they might have different kinds of angles, and not every quadrilateral will have the same number of sides of equal length.
- Have students look at each quadrilateral.
- •Which quadrilaterals can have two pairs of opposite sides that are parallel? (square, rectangle, trapezoid, and rhombus)
- Are all quadrilaterals also rectangles? (Explain. No; possible explanation: a trapezoid is a quadrilateral, but it may not a rectangle.
- Are all rectangles also trapezoids? (Explain. Yes; possible explanation: trapezoids have at least 1 pair of opposite sides that are parallel and rectangles have 2 pairs of opposite sides that are parallel.

Students will participate in class discussion following procedures of raising hand and waiting to be called on.

After class discussion, students will participate in a Kahoot! activity. Kahoot! Teacher will Search: "Duplicate of Quadrilaterals". Show students "Code". This activity can be completed by teaching or assigning option.

**Strategies for Diverse Learners**

Some ideas for how teachers can adjust the lesson to meet the needs of diverse learners is to have them work with partners. Show them flashcards. Drill and Practice.
