Product Description
I've created a "MATH" bingo card for practicing angle pairs created by two parallel lines intersected by a transversal: Alternate Interior, Alternate Exterior, Same Side Interior, Same Side Exterior, and Corresponding.

I'm sure there's many ways to use it but let me tell you what I did with my students! They were up and moving, competing, practicing identifying angle pairs, and having a lot of fun while doing it!


* One bingo card per student
* Painters tape
* Bean bags (2 per set up)

Set up:

* Create a set of parallel lines and transversal on the floor using painters tape
* Place a "throw line" approximately 7 feet away from the diagram on the floor


I had each student fill out a bingo card using the different angles pairs (which are included in a word bank at the top). I told them they must use each angle pair 3 times and they pick one to use 4 times. After they were done with their bingo cards, I explained the way the game would work:

Students take turns standing at the "throw line" and tossing bean bags towards the diagram. Their goal is to land the bags on two angles which would form one of the 5 angle pairs.

If they do not get a pair, it is the next student's turn. If they are successful, they are able to choose one of the boxes they've got that pair written in to cross off.

They must mark where the bean bags landed on the diagram in the box. You can have them simply put an "x" to represent the bean bag. If you're wanting to focus on Supplementary vs. Congruent rather than just names, you can have them mark the location of the bean bags using possible angle measures (for example, 75 and 75 for congruent or 75 and 105 for supplementary).

Students continue taking turns (and holding each other accountable - it is a competition after all!) until one of the students gets 4 boxes in a row.

After explaining the directions, I grouped students in 2-3 and had them go one of the diagrams on the floor to begin their game.

Many students requested to play tournament style! They loved it! And they didn't even realize how much practice they were getting with identifying angle pairs!
