This activity is formatted to print on a full sheet of paper and then be cut in half. (See my store for cards formatted to print on 5x8 notecards.)
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
