I typically use this foldable with my students in Algebra 1, so I wanted something on the quicker and easier side that they hadn't seen before. I whipped up a quick graphic organizer over graphing ordered pairs.
Then, I gave my students a coordinate graphing picture from Worksheetworks.com. My picture looked a bit different from one of my students which makes me think that I might have accidentally skipped a few points. I did this over the course of a day in between helping students. I should have marked off each point as I graphed it to make sure I didn't miss any with all my starting and stopping.
I ended up giving the same picture to my Algebra 1 students later, so once I've done another for that notebook, I'll try and update this post with a proper kangaroo.
Kids asked if I chose a kangaroo on purpose since I spent my summer in Australia. Duh.
Plus, kangaroos are cute.
I now interrupt this math-y post with some cute kangaroo pics from this summer.
You're very welcome.
Okay. Enough cuteness. Back to the math.
I typed up a quick set of steps to save writing time while reviewing graphing linear equations.
We talked through HOYVUX again since it had been a while since they'd seen it. Some of my students had a different Algebra 1 teacher, so we also had to rewatch Slope Dude. The other students insisted.
Before class, I quickly put together a poof book of practice equations to graph.
I found these awesome instructions (via Pinterest) that show how to easily fold the poof book.
Oops! I'll definitely fix this next time I use this with a group of students. Don't worry, I'll upload the editable Publisher file so you can change the equations to your heart's content!
All the files are here. (And, remember - you can always access every single file on my blog here!)
