Students work with the Pythagorean Theorem to find missing side lengths of right triangles and the areas and perimeters of the triangles in this activity that doubles as classroom decor. Students practice using the Pythagorean Theorem while also using their logic to figure out area and perimeter. Each pennant also includes Greek line art for students to color so that the end product is a fun pennant to hang in your classroom that says, "Hey, we know the Pythagorean Theorem!"
*Measurements are in cm, m and km.
Version with customary measurements: Pythagorean Theorem Pennant
Included are 20 pennants, an answer sheet (if you would like students to also record their answers for credit) and an answer key. Each group of students can be given a set of pennants, scissors and either glue, tape or a stapler. Students can be in charge of cutting out the pennants. Groups can compete to see which group can complete the most pennants or your entire class can add pennants to one string as they complete each one. You may also choose to have your students colour their pennants to add to your classroom decor.
