Included are a few things: 1. the 5 congruence postulates and a not congruent page to post around the room, 2. a SmartBoard presentation with 28 pictures, and 3. a homework page I found online(for free).
Directions: print and laminate the postulates around the room. When a picture comes up on the board, students walk around to the appropriate spot that denotes why the triangles are congruent. I typically count down from 10 giving students time to get to the right spot without wasting too much time. I keep a tally of who is in the right spot the most and give them a prize (candy) at the end of class.
I use this as a practice to help my students identify how the triangles are congruent based on the picture. Plus, it gets them out of their seats! :)
