This is a great station activity for common core eighth grade math. Given a set of parallel lines and transversals, students find three examples for a variety of angle types. This can also be used as a classwork or homework assignment. A rich and open-ended activity in a small space (just two pages).
Look out for this activity and many others in my eighth grade bundles at a deep discount!!! Coming Soon!

Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so.
