Mission # 1 – Low Effort + High Engagement = Awesome Angles Activity

Note: This is my mission # 1 for the mtbos! You should get involved if you haven’t already! Anyways…

One of problems that I just did with my honors geometry class last week went really well. The activity itself is self-explanatory so the worksheet below sums it nicely. I had students do it in pairs of 2-3 and since this is my honors class, they flew through the first one like nothing. The second one made them think a little more but they still got through it pretty quickly. I really don’t like to do an activity if I have to work harder than the kids to get something done. This activity is the complete opposite! The kids do all the work, they practice all their vocabulary (and it is not kill and drill), and they have fun doing it since it is like a puzzle to them! I highly encourage you to try it out if you are teaching geometry. I can’t remember where I got this from or if I created it myself so if I stole someone else’s thing I apologize in advanced!
