This activity includes 3 different components:
1. Interactive Notebook Notes:

The notes provide two different options. The first is to have the students cut and paste the titles of each element of the coordinate plane.
Often, cutting and pasting such small pieces can be time consuming… so I have provided a copy where students write in each element through guided notes.
Cut out square.
Write in the labels for the coordinate plane (Depending on which version you use.)
Fold each corner in to the origin.
Glue the Quadrant labels o the back.
Then, fold the shape in half and glue the title.
2. Off the Grid Station Activity
The object of the game is to be the first player to land on an ordered pair that is NOT on the grid.
-6 or 12 sided dice.
-Enlarge game board to poster size
-Centimeter cubes as game pieces
Place the cards face down beside the game board.
Each player begins at the origin.
Choose a card and follow the directions; some cards require a roll of the die to determine the number of spaces to move. Then place the card in a discard pile. If the cards run out before the game is over, reshuffle the cards to continue playing.
This continues until one of the players lands on a space that is “OFF THE GRID.”
Players can keep track of their ordered pairs on the included accountability sheet.
3. BONUS: 5 Question Formative Assessment!
6(11) Measurement and data. The student applies mathematical process standards to use coordinate geometry to identify locations on a plane. The student is expected to graph points in all four quadrants using ordered pairs of rational numbers.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.
