2) Art Project

Another fun way to review your quadrilaterals math unit is by asking students to create an art project. Students trace parallelograms, rectangles, squares, rhombus, and trapezoids onto construction paper and then cut them out. It is then their job to turn the quadrilaterals into a piece of art. Sometimes students make robots, landscapes, and mermaids, the options are endless!

Don’t have quadrilaterals tracers, try giving students blocks to trace or ask them to make their own! Remind students to include a variety of sizes in their projects.

3) Design a Snack Shack Project Based Learning Activity

This grade 5 math project provides students with the opportunity to design their own snack shack! In this project, students use a collection of clues to identify the correct quadrilateral. They will also review concepts such as perimeter, area, capacity, volume, data collection, double bar graphs, and transformations.
