Have your students apply their understanding of PARALLEL LINES cut by a TRANSVERSAL with these fun activities including a maze, riddle, and coloring activity.

What's Included:

1. Parallel Lines & Transversals ~ Missing Angle MAZE (print and digital)

This is a self-checking worksheet that allows students to strengthen their skills in finding the missing angle when parallel lines are cut by a transversal. Students are given one angle. Students use their answers to navigate through the puzzle.

2. Parallel Lines & Transversals ~ Angle Pairs COLORING ACTIVITY (print)

Students are prompted to identify given angle pairs using diagrams of parallel lines cut by a transversal. Students use their answers to color the picture.

3 Parallel Lines & Transversals ~ Solving Equations RIDDLE (print and digital)

Students must find the value of x using given angles created by parallel lines and a transversal. Students will have to write and solve equations. They must then use their solutions to solve the riddle.

All 3 of these activities allow students to practice solving problems with PARALLEL LINES cut by a TRANSVERSAL while incorporating fun into the classroom!

Print AND Digital: (updated October 2020)

✔️ PRINTED VERSION - a PDF file that you may PRINT

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Prove theorems about lines and angles.
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.
