Scavenger Hunt: Similar Triangles Walk Around Activity
This activity is designed to help students work with similar triangles. This activity also gets students up and about.
Place the 10 cards on the wall around your room. Students may pick any card to begin with. They should write a proportion using corresponding side of similar triangles. After solving for x, they should find the length of the missing side and find the card with the correct answer. Then work the problem on this card. They should continue until they return to the card they started with.
Included are 2 versions of this activity.
- One with 10 cards for use as a walk-around activity (with a smaller size for absent students).
- A shorter version with only 5 cards great for table work, bell work or use as a review.
To help with grading, I have included 2 student answer sheets: One has room for students to show their work, and another with just boxes to show the order.
* Mid-Lesson or End of Lesson Check for understanding
* Math Station for students that have finished work early
* Test Review
* Homework Alternative
* Bell work
