If the students plot points correctly and connect the lines as directed, the page folds up into a paper airplane!
This activity is a fun way for your class to practice graphing ordered pairs on a coordinate plane.
Two versions are included:
- Version One incorporates reflections of points and lines across the x-axis or y-axis.
- Version Two is more basic and all points are given as ordered pairs.
Students plot points and connect them to create lines. They answer a few questions (identifying quadrants and points) on a short worksheet, then follow the directions to fold along their lines to create a paper airplane.
Choose the version with or without reflections depending on which is appropriate for your class (or some of each for easy differentiation). Print one worksheet and one coordinate plane sheet per student.
***For more advanced students, try the higher level Coordinate Planes activity that incorporates linear equations in Slope-Intercept Form: Coordinate PLANES: Paper Airplanes from Graphing Linear Equations
