# Quadrilaterals

How will you record the quadrilaterals you've made? You might like to print off this sheet to use.

You could try drawing quadrilaterals which have a side made by joining two pegs next to each other. How many different quadrilaterals can you make in this way?

How will you know when you've got them all?
