I started using Stick-n-Solve Foldables in my Math Interactive Notebooks last year and it worked great! There are a few things about these Stick-n-Solves that I really have enjoyed. First, my students no longer spend time copying down problems when we take notes. I always thought this was a waste of time. Now, the problems are on the foldable ready to be solved. The students like to cut and fold and glue while working in their notebooks. It gives them something tactile to do during class. Finally, the foldables are a built in review tool for your students. At the end of a unit, they can go back through their notebooks and solve all the problems on the Stick-n-Solves. Since the work is on the inside, they just open them up to check their answers. Each foldable in this set has two per page. My students are set up in partners, so I give one sheet to each partner pair to cut in half. There is no extra paper on these foldable templates (which means no little scraps of paper to trim off and end up all over the floor).
This Bundle focuses on Congruence & Similarity and includes 8 Stick-n-Solve Foldables:
1. Translations – CCSS.8.G.A.1, 1.A, 1.B, 1.C
2. Reflections – CCSS.8.G.A.1, 1.A, 1.B, 1.C
3. Rotations – CCSS.8.G.A.1, 1.A, 1.B, 1.C
4. Congruence Sequences - CCSS.8.G.A.2
5. Transformations & Coordinates - CCSS.8.G.A.3
6. Dilations - CCSS.8.G.A.4
7. Similarity Sequences - CCSS.8.G.A.4
8. Angle-Angle Criterion - CCSS.8.G.A.5
For each foldable, you will see two pictures. You will see a draft picture of notes for the topic, and a picture of the solutions on the inside of the foldable. For almost every topic covered, I’ve made a foldable. In total I have created about 50 Stick-n-Solve Foldables for 8th grade common core math and organized them into the following bundles:
1. Congruence & Similarity
2. Numbers & Pythagorean Theorem
4. Linear Relationships & Analysis
5. Equations & Systems
6. Angles & Volume
7. Vocabulary Diagrams
These activities can be found in my Math Interactive Notebook 8th Grade FOLDABLE BUNDLES at 15% or 25% off!!!

Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations:
Lines are taken to lines, and line segments to line segments of the same length.
Angles are taken to angles of the same measure.
Parallel lines are taken to parallel lines.
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them.
Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two-dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them.
Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so.
