We just wrapped up our geometry unit this week so we thought we would post what we've been doing!
Here are the anchor charts from the last two weeks:
Some highlights from our week studying coordinate grid:
Students plot ordered pairs of wellknown characters,teachers, administrators, and sports teams

During teacher station, students plotted ordered pairs on their slates. 
During one of our independent stations, students completed a tiered activity. The objective was the same: All students will compare and contrast lines of symmetry in the alphabet. Students were given cardstock letters (cut from a dye cut) to manipulate.
High and HighMedium groups completed a Venn Diagram to sort capital letters by vertical and/or horizontal lines of symmetry. 
The LowMedium group sorted capital letters by how many lines of symmetry each letter has. 
The Low group simply determined whether or not a letter had a line of symmetry. Then they drew the line of symmetry. 
Have a great 3 day weekend! :)
LOVE these ideas!!! The wallsized coordinate grid is amazing.
ReplyDeleteDonna,
DeleteThank you! It took quite a bit of time to construct, but seeing the students love it and learn from it was exciting!
Feel free to share your ideas on geometry!
Thanks again,
Chloe & Tabitha
