Go on a quadrilateral hunt! Find as many items as you can that have four straight sides. Examples include: a page in a book, the top of a table, the front door, and a picture frame.

Adjust for a younger child

Words like “rhombus” and “quadrilateral” might be too difficult for the younger child. Instead, focus on talking about shapes that have four sides.
