Product Description
Introduce students to geometric constructions using string and a straight edge!

In this lesson, a powerpoint guides students in constructing a circle, perpendicular bisectors, and replicating an angle. The powerpoint allows students to attempt constructions on their own first. Then, color-coded instructions show students how to do each construction.

The drawings work great on large paper, but copy paper works too. Notes are included on the powerpoint for the teacher. PDFs are also provided, one for the teacher to guide the lesson and one with student instructions. The student instructions could be given to a student to follow independently.

Common Core Standard:
CCSS.Math.Content.HSG.CO.D.12Make formal geometric constructions with a variety of tools and methods (compass and straightedge, string, reflective devices, paper folding, dynamic geometric software, etc.). Copying a segment; copying an angle; bisecting a segment; bisecting an angle; constructing perpendicular lines, including the perpendicular bisector of a line segment; and constructing a line parallel to a given line through a point not on the line.
