Resource
Explore different Quadrilaterals with geoboards and record on dotted grids. Sort quadrilaterals according to properties (parallel and perpendicular lines). Classify, describe and name quadrilaterals using the grid.

Resource
PowerPoint for year 6 : discuss where they could see parallel or perpendicular lines. Then we discussed the pictures and outlined that parallel lines don't always have to be straight as long as they are the same distance apart and never meet.

Resource
A free poster that can be used to help your children learn about parallel and perpendicular lines.

#### National Flags

Pick a flag and investigate some of the following:-

What shapes can you see in it? Can you describe them and their angles?
Does the flag have any lines of reflective symmetry, if so how many lines?
Can you find any pairs of parallel lines? If so mark them on your flag.
Are there any lines perpendicular to one another?

Lesson
Looking for parallel and perpendicular lines in the world around us and in 2D shapes. The activity involves drawing 2D shapes with certain pairs of lines (differentiated - 3 levels).

Lesson
A single lesson where pupils learn the difference between the 2 types of line, and have to spot the difference between them.
