PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This document contains 2 activities that I used once I have introduced types of angles relating to parallel lines and transversals. The first activity is simpler, while the second is challenging for some. It is a fun activity and a great way to reinforce angles formed with parallel lines.

Activity 1: Parallel City 1: In this activity, students are given 8 different building (bank, park, etc.) and are asked to place one of them on each corner of Parallel City. They are then asked to identify the buildings based on their angle relationships. A Parallel City map sheet is provided for this activity with two parallel roads and one transversal road.

Activity 2: Parallel City 2: In this activity, students are given 7 construction clues (Your house and the park are alternate interior angles) and are asked to place them on the Parallel City 2 map sheet according to the directions. The map MUST fit all of the directions. A Parallel City 2 map sheet is provided for this activity with three parallel roads and one transversal road to increase difficulty.

A possible solution for Parallel City 2 is provided. It is important to note that other solutions are possible!

Also, when my students do this activity, I don't just have them write the building names on the appropriate street corners. I have them make a picture that represents the building. For example: A dollar bill and money signs for the bank, or a swing set and a tree for the park. They also must use color. My students seem to take the activity more seriously when they can make their map their own.
