This CCSS 8th grade Geometry standard aligned, 18-slide PPT goes through the difference between similar vs congruent shapes and has students draw both similar and congruent shapes given various starting figures.
This a very introductory lesson to similar and congruent figures - it does NOT go into terminology such as dilation, rotation, flip, etc. It is much more of a visual lesson, although it does introduce to students how to draw/identify similar figures based on side lengths of similar factors.
Has vocabulary, examples, guided practice, and independent practice/class work.
It is NOT a unit; it does NOT have assessments; it is NOT homework.
This is a direct instruction lesson.
This is in PPT Show format. If you would prefer and editable version of this product, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
