PROBLEM OF THE WEEK
(5.M.G.04 I can classify 2D figures in a hierarchy.)
Read the problem and Underline the Question
Boston loved learning about shapes. One day, while he was on Spring break he
was looking up all different facts about two-dimensional shapes. He found this
chart on the internet.
POLYGON

Based on the chart that Boston found online, he made some conclusions. Use the
diagram to help fill in the blanks about 2-dimensional shapes.
A trapezoid is a quadrilateral, but not a _________________________.
A square is a ______________________ and a ____________________.
A ______________, ________________, and _____________________ are all
parallelograms.
A rectangle is a _________________, but not a rhombus.
Can you come up with two of your own conclusions based on the chart?
1)________________________________________________________________
2)________________________________________________________________
Part 2: Construct a tree diagram or your own chart to illustrate the hierarchy of two
dimensional shapes. Use the shapes given in the chart, and ADD MORE IF YOU
KNOW MORE!

Based on the chart that Boston found online, he made some conclusions. Use the
diagram to help fill in the blanks about 2-dimensional shapes.
A trapezoid is a quadrilateral, but not a PARALLELOGRAM.
A square is a RHOMBUS and a RECTANGLE.
A RHOMBUS, RECTANGLE, and SQUARE are all parallelograms.
A rectangle is a SQUARE, but not a rhombus.
