Students will be introduced to lines, line segments, and rays. Not only will they learn to recognize each of them, they will be able to understand the difference as well. By the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify lines, line segments, and rays in a diagram; create and name lines, line segments, and rays; and describe, in their own words, what they observed about lines, line segments, rays, and points.
During the activity, students will...
read short definitions of each term.
represent each term using their arms and hands.
use new information to recognize and name each item.
locate lines, line segments, and rays from a picture.
The diverse needs of students will be met by...
