2) What does “lateral” mean? (use examples like a “lateral pass” in football)

4) What kind of shapes can we make with four lines?
5) What is a square?
6) What is a rectangle?
7) Is a square a rectangle and why or why not?
8) Is a rectangle a square and why or why not?
Students will enter the multiplayer world with their Classifying Shapes Worksheets and watch the videos embedded inside the NPCs. The students will come up with a definition and build shapes that can classified under that definition. After that they will peer review the work of their classmates by labeling the shape with a sign, one structure can be more than one shape, for example a parallelogram is also a trapezoid and quadrilateral. Once they finish hit the “More Shapes” button inside the NPC to be teleported into the next room.
Room 1) Quadrilaterals
Room 2) Trapezoids
Room 3) Parallelograms
Room 4) Rectangles
Room 5) Squares, Rhombuses, and Kites.
Optional Capture the Flag Game
After your class is finished you might what to play a game of Quadrilateral Capture the Flag. To do this simply go to coordinates x-39 y4 z4 by using the command /tp @a -39 4 4 Split the class into two teams and have each team chose a skin to wear as a uniform. After you push the “Build Map” button students will be teleported into the “Team Room” the purple team will walk to the purple side and the gold team will walk to the gold side and all players will then enter the game map.
Once in the game map as students to build quadrilaterals and label them. When you feel that they have build enough structures hit the play game button at x-39 y4 z9and students will then be teleported to their locker rooms where they will pick their character and play capture the flag. First team to destroy the other teams flag wins.
