In my Geometry class, I stress vocabulary more than anything! There are so many words to learn!
This file contains Match-Up Cards, Task Cards, Parallel City, and Tic Tac Math, all pertaining to Parallel Lines and Transversals. Check out the documents individually in my store, or buy them all here. Items included are $9.50 in value!
Take a look at the descriptions below.
Parallel Lines and Transversals Match-Up
This match up game contains 24 cards highlighting vocabulary words associated with parallel lines and transversals. Each vocab word is accompanied by a certain number of picture cards. Use these cards as a match game or remove cards of your choice to make a memory game. Great for individual, pair, or group work!
Alternate Interior Angles (2 picture cards included)
Alternate Exterior Angles (2 picture cards included)
Consecutive Interior Angles (2 picture cards included)
Corresponding Angles (4 picture cards included)
Vertical Angles (4 picture cards included)
Supplementary Angles (4 picture cards included)
Parallel Lines and Transversals Task Cards
This document contains 28 Parallel Lines and Transversal Task Cards that tests the knowledge of:
alternate interior, alternate exterior, consecutive interior, corresponding, and more!
An answer key and recording sheet is provided!
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.
Tic Tac Math
This activity is based off the game of Tic Tac Toe. However, in order to put an X or O on the grid, you must first CORRECTLY answer a math problem. There are 2 Tic Tac Toe games included in this document, each with two parallel lines cut by two transversals. Each game concentrates on finding special angle pairs (alternate interior, corresponding, etc.). No computations are made in either game.
Game 1:Parallel lines are horizontal
Game 2: Parallel lines are vertical for increased difficulty
Keys for both games are included.
