Introducing the concepts of quadrilaterals to kids can be a very challenging task. Different children have different learning capacities, which makes teaching that much more complicated. Some kids may understand the basics of geometry in just a few moments, while other kids may not have a clue of what you are talking about. In this post, we're going to give you a few tips on how you can teach your kids the basics of quadrilaterals, which is a key part of geometry.

There are many types of quadrilaterals, which may cause a lot of confusions in young kids. Therefore, it is important to first establish the idea of a quadrilateral in them. Keep emphasizing the fact that a quadrilateral is simply and shape made of four straight lines. Make sure they understand that a quadrilateral is not a fixed shape, like a circle or square.

A helpful tip is to teach the kids a quadrilateral song. Many songs are available and you could chose a song that you think fits your lass the best. A lot of these songs are sung to the tune of common songs, so you can chose one which the kids will have fun singing. Singing and rhyming is an effective way to get information retained in kids minds. You can find a lot of these songs on youtube. A few link are,

## 1. This good for students who are into modern music.

## 2. Quadrilaterals for younger kids.

## 3. This is a good song too.

## 4. A fun song with a very informative video.

## 5. Another perfect quadrilateral song for kids who like modern music.

## Common Core Standards

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSG.CO.C.11

Prove theorems about parallelograms. Theorems include: opposite sides are congruent, opposite angles are congruent, the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, and conversely, rectangles are parallelograms with congruent diagonals.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSG.CO.D.12

Make formal geometric constructions with a variety of tools and methods (compass and straightedge, string, reflective devices, paper folding, dynamic geometric software, etc.).Copying a segment; copying an angle; bisecting a segment; bisecting an angle; constructing perpendicular lines, including the perpendicular bisector of a line segment; and constructing a line parallel to a given line through a point not on the line.
