This activity is formatted to print on 5x8" Notecards. (See my store for cards formatted to print on a whole sheet of paper which is then cut in half.)
This discovery activity contains six activity cards for use in the Geometry classroom. I designed this activity to be used the day before my students watch my flipped lesson on distance formula.
During this activity students will begin to understand:
• Distance is the same no matter what direction is being traveled.
• Distance must be positive.
• Why a common standard of measurement is important.
• Ways to measure without standard units. How measurement evolved into what we have today.
• Segment Addition Postulate
You will need the following supplies:
• tape measure and/or ruler
• Google Maps or a map of your area
