Square or Rectangle?

Ok, a square is a special kind of rectangle, but for my 5 year old, we’ll just stick with square or rectangle.

I made him some worksheets to practice distinguishing between the two. They can be cut apart to make flashcards as well. I ask him is it a square or rectangle and with each response, I ask him why it is what he said.

Perimeter File Folder Cards

Here are some basic perimeter cards that I made up. Each card has a polygon with measurements and students can pick a card and calculate the perimeters. You could make answer cards to go along with it and make it a matching activity.  I got these from 4th and 5th grade books…………. You could just also use them for worksheets.
