What is this lesson about?
Lesson 1 covers points, lines, line segments, and rays. By the end of this lesson, students should be able to:
1) differentiate between points, lines, line segments, and rays
2) draw and label points, lines, line segments, and rays
3) name points, lines, line segments, and rays in several ways
4) locate points, lines, line segments, and rays in more complex figures
Who is this product for? Where can I use it?
This modified geometry lesson is designed for use in a small group or one-on-one setting. It can be used with students in a special education or other intervention setting, or it can be used as a supplement for students who are struggling in a general education geometry class. I currently use these lessons with a student who has an IEP and was not successful in the general education geometry class.
Unlike other modified math curricula, this product is designed to resemble typical middle or high school math worksheets. No cartoon characters or cutesy fonts - just an age-appropriate packet.
What exactly am I getting?
With this download, you will receive a no-prep, ready-to-use packet that teaches points, lines, line segments, and rays. After each piece of instruction, the student has opportunities for teacher-supported practice to ensure understanding before moving on. The end of the packet provides independent practice opportunities that can be given for homework. There are also four pages of additional practice problems intended to give students extra practice with each concept if they were not immediately successful in the "supported practice" sections.
Does it come with an answer key?
Yes! A full answer key is provided for the supported practice, independent practice, and additional practice sessions. Because students are required to produce their own drawings, their responses may differ from the answer key. The answer key is provided as a guide and example. (Sometimes teachers get stuck too!)
How long is this packet?
8 pages: Instruction, Supported Practice, Independent Practice
4 pages: Additional Practice
12 pages: Full Answer Key
24 pages total
How long will it take me to teach this lesson?
The length varies greatly depending on the abilities and skills of your students. If your students have had basic geometry instruction in the past, and they have a basic understanding of the concepts, they may knock out the lesson in 20 minutes or less. If they struggle with these concepts or haven't seen them before, it may take 45+ minutes, especially if the student uses the additional practice pages.
Are there going to be more lessons?
Yes! More lessons are on the way. Make sure to follow Creative Access to get updates.
