Product Description
This activity is a fun way to introduce the concept of locus in Geometry. In my experience, locus is one of the concepts that students struggle with the most and this helps students have a visual and memorable experience with the topic. I usually use Twizzlers for lines and M&Ms for points, but they could be easily be substituted withe Sour Straws and Skittles, etc.

Students will work in a cooperative learning group to manipulate the candy to discover basic locus theorems.
