Share My Lesson 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students will use the learning from previous lessons, as well as new learning to construct and justify their own ideas about the attributes of a square. They are encouraged to persevere in proving their thinking and critique the methods and reasoning of other students through the comparison and discussion section of the lesson. This lesson provides experiences that will give a foundation for 3.G.1, where students will be asked to understand that shapes in different categories may share attributes and that those attributes can define a larger category. Recognize the attributes of a square and how they differ from and are similar to the attributes of a rectangle.
