Geometry - What is a Rhombus?

A RHOMBUS is a 4 sided figure. It is a special type of parallelogram in which all 4 sides are equal and opposite angles are also equal.  





A rhombus is sometimes called a diamond!



Every rhombus is a parallelogram and a rhombus with 4 right angles is a square.

Here is a link to a cute, clever, and catchy little musical video for kids to view to help them remember this particular polygon. You might feel like you have traveled to a tropical island as you view and listen to this video. It certainly has an Island Flair!



Here is another link to a video about the RHOMBUS!

After viewing the video, students could sketch and label a rhombus or several rhombuses in their math notebooks. They could also look for rhombuses in their environment and even take some pictures.
