Use this resource to help your students develop their understanding of trapezoids and other two-dimensional shapes. Students will compare the attributes of trapezoids to those of other plane figures, such as triangles and ovals, in this geometry activity.
Geometry in third grade introduces kids to the idea that shapes have different categories (rectangles, rhombuses, etc..) attributes (four-sided, etc...) and areas of different values. This lesson, designed by our curriculum experts, provides the guided instruction and practice that third graders need to conceptualize shapes in a deeper way.
