Use these items as advance tickets in a board game, as a scavenger hunt or simply as task cards.
5.8A introduces students to the structure of the coordinate plane. The verb in the Student Expectation (SE) is describe. Students in 5th grade need to be able to describe the key attributes of the coordinate plane.
This kit contains two sets of the same questions/problems. One set has four answer choices, while the other is open-ended. The open-ended might best challenge your most advanced students, but they would also be an excellent choice for small-group, teacher-facilitated practice.
I love using cards like this with a fun game board. Reluctant students don’t even seem to notice they are working as they play, and the teacher has the constant opportunity to point out just how much fun math can be as kids successfully solve problems.

Keeping kits of game markers, dice, spinners, and random game boards available for these opportunities makes set-up a breeze, especially once a parent volunteer has copied and cut the cards for me.
