Today, I introduced the concepts of parallel and perpendicular lines to my Algebra 1 classes.
Quote of the Day: "I'm going to name my kid 'Perpendicular.'"
I had my students complete this foldable for our interactive notebooks.

Outside of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines Foldable 
I'm not the biggest fan of what I had my students write inside the foldable. It was a little wordy, and I will tell you that the amount of writing decreased with each class period that I taught this. I put this together at the last minute, and it shows. Next time I cover this topic, I will revisit this and revise. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Parallel lines IN THE SAME PLANE never intersect.
ReplyDeleteGreat foldable !
Love your blog!
Thanks for the clarification and your kind words! I was definitely only thinking in algebra mode when making this...
DeleteObviously if students are going to use colorful paper and makers, one would assume we are only observing a single plane.
DeleteI used this today in my Algebra 1 class. The kids were really into it.
ReplyDeleteThanks for sharing!
Modifying this down for my 5th graders! Thanks for the idea :)
ReplyDeleteI would modify this to use the space on the flap for example equations of each type. Love this, thanks for the idea!
ReplyDeleteInstead of "neither", I would use the word "intersecting". Thanks for the idea :)
ReplyDeleteOoooh! What if you had two flaps: Parallel and Intersecting? Then, you opened the Intersecting flap to reveal two more flaps: Perpendicular and Intersecting but not Perpendicular. You have given me an idea! Thanks!
