These worksheets introduce your beginning geometry students to creating different quadrilaterals using drawing and tangrams.

#### Quadrilaterals are four-sided two-dimensional shapes that are composed of straight lines. The basic composition of these geometric figures has four edges and corners and the interior angles add to three-hundred and sixty degrees. Normally you will find six classifications of quadrilaterals. A rectangle has opposite sides that are equal and all corners are ninety degrees. A square has all sides that are equal and all angles equal to ninety degrees. In a rhombus all sides are equal and the opposite sides are parallel. Parallelograms have equal sides and opposite sides are parallel. Trapezoids have two parallel sides. The kite is well, just the kite.

These worksheets explains how to understand and work with quadrilaterals. Your students will use these activity sheets to practice constructing different quadrilaterals by drawing or the use of tangrams. Instructors are encouraged to have tangram sets available.
