Bring geometry and number sense to life with these big, easy-to-use essential questions posters for sixth grade math. The illustrations and kid-friendly essential questions help students understand mathematical concepts and procedures like finding area, the coordinate plane, ordered pairs, and plotting shapes.
If you are required to post essential questions in your 6th grade math classroom, this essential questions bundle will save you a ton of time.
The large size of these essential questions posters makes them easy to see and well suited to projecting onto the screen. You can project them from the Adobe file or you can put a printout under the document camera. Once a lesson gets started, I like to project a poster and have a printout ready for students who need something to focus on within their reach. Sometimes, I'll put a black and white copy of a poster in a homework packet to help the kids (and their parents) understand the homework assignment.

How I use them...
Hand-drawn anchor charts taped to the wall are awesome, but they have their drawbacks. No matter what wall I hang an anchor chart on, it isn't visible to every student in the room. Also, my handwriting is not all that terrific. On top of that, I have a hard time keeping track of anchor charts and finding the one I need when I need it. I lose them!
These essential question posters have a few advantages over anchor charts. I can project one BIG to the screen in the front of the classroom AND print a few out for individual students or tables that need more focus. For example, if the topic of the day is finding the area of triangles, I'll project the corresponding poster. If a student or table needs more focus, I'll give them a printed copy. Sometimes, to save paper, I use Adobe Reader's multiple pages per sheet printing function to print out four posters per page. This comes in particularly handy when I need more than one poster for day's topic. For example, if the lesson involves ratios and finding area, I might need two or three essential question posters.
In addition to helping students focus, the essential question posters help me stay organized. Now I have ALL my 6th grade math concepts covered in one digital file. No more digging through stacks of anchor charts.
These Essential Question posters for sixth grade math are unique because the detailed illustrations answer the question, or at least make it easier to understand. There are SIXTY-FOUR illustrated posters covering all the sixth grade math Common Core domains: Number Sense, Ratio and Proportions, Expressions and Equations, Geometry, Statistics and Probability.
