Students will love this activity! What better way to teach math but to use literature and hands-on practice!

Students will read the book "A Fly on the Ceiling" by Julie Glass. You can choose to read the book as a group or you can access the youtube link of a free read aloud of the book.

Students will then use hands on materials to practice graphing in the first quadrant only. All materials are provided in the activity! Not only do students practice graphing but they will also practice putting the movement it takes to plot the ordered pair, into words. This one activity helps to practice and reinforce TEKS 5.8A, 5.8B and 5.8C

NEW January 2021- Since many learners are virtual, I have added a digital component to this activity! This download includes the same great paper game but now I also have an independent activity to use online with online learners. Perfect for distance learning!

You might also enjoy my Reach for the Stars Activity which involves movement on the coordinate grid!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., 𝘹-axis and 𝘹-coordinate, 𝘺-axis and 𝘺-coordinate).
Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.
