Learning Goal: To identify quadrilaterals in real word applications.

Materials Needed: Quadrilateral Properties worksheet, Flip camera, Golden Pass to be in the hallways, writing instrument, and this sheet. I have clipboards that you may use.

Task: To locate squares, rectangles, rhombi, parallelograms, and isosceles trapezoids, record your findings with a Flip camera, and describe their properties. Optional shapes to find are a kite, trapezoid (not isosceles), right triangle, and isosceles triangle.

Rules of the Hunt:
 May bring things in from home or find items at school
 May use photographs (from anywhere) or artwork that is posted in the school
 May use parts of logos, packaging, items used to construct a whole object
 The shape does not need to stand alone
 May use a different perspective of its intended shape
 May use the Internet to help you come up with ideas
 May NOT draw the figure, find it on the internet, cut it out of paper, or create it
 Each group member needs to describe the characteristics of at least one quadrilateral
 Each group member needs to find at least one quadrilateral
 Each group member needs to film at least once
 Everyone must be on their best behavior in hallways and not disturb other classes
 Everyone must be careful with the Flip cameras
 All filming must be completed and submitted by __________

List and Point Totals:
&#9633; Parallelogram (not a square, rhombus, or rectangle) = 15
&#9633; Rectangle (not a square) = 5
&#9633; Rhombus (not a square) = 15
&#9633; Square = 10
&#9633; Isosceles Trapezoid = 15
&#9633; Kite = 20 (optional)
&#9633; Trapezoid (not isosceles) = 20 (optional)
&#9633; Right triangle = 10 (optional)
&#9633; Isosceles triangle = 10 (optional)
&#9633; Describing the correct characteristics of the quadrilaterals = 50 (10 points each)
&#9633; Presentation of the quadrilaterals and their descriptions are clear = 25 (5 points each)
&#9633; All group members appeared on video at least once = 20
