A Quadrilateral is a
that has four sides and four corners. The most simplified quadrilateral is the square.
Everyday items can be examples of quadrilaterals. For instance, your everyday piece of toast
can be looked at as square. A kitchen table that is rectangular is also an example.
It can be fun for students learning shapes to walk around their schools or homes and find physical examples of the shapes they are learning. Introducing news shapes and vocabulary can be tricky at first, but with practice comes knowledge.
Just as Visual Math Learning stimulates virtual learning, it can be good to associate these lessons into real world items. Other items great for demonstrating shapes are fruit, crackers, books, and even larger items such as entertainment centers for flat screen TVs. Shapes are an interesting topic, and important to know for learning other subjects and hobbies.
