Product Description

Included in this file:

•Table markers (Captain America, Storm, Black Panther, Aquaman, The Flash, Wonder Woman)

•Superhero Sighting map (corresponds to the coordinates from the quizzes)

•Quiz Quiz Trade cards (geometric terms)

•Geometric Terms Puzzle

•Battle One, Battle Two, Battle Three Posters

•Battle One (I used as a quiz on geometric attributes)

•Battle Two (I used as a quiz on triangles)

•Battle Three (I used as a quiz on symmetry)

•Battle For Power One, Battle For Power Two, Battle For Power Three, Battle For Power Four (I used these on our cumulative review day)

•Mystery Key (after each battle, students would reveal a card –this card would help them, protect them, delay them, or allow them to delay another team –on the back of each card had a coordinate that they would mark on their Superhero Sightings map)

Angles

•Drawing Angles practice sheets (x2)

•Quiz on drawing angles, measuring angles, rotating angles, and classifying angles

•New York City, Edinburgh, Titan, and Xander(I used these on our cumulative review day)

I used the table markers to split my class into two teams: Marvel superheroes and DC superheroes. As we went through the battles (quizzes), a different team would recruit the superhero we were looking for. The final battle for power was won by whoever team had a higher majority of heroes done.

When we moved to our angles unit, whichever team had won the final battle recruited every one else. When we went to New York City, Edinburgh, Titan, and Xander, I told the kids we were racing to see who could make it there first.

Geometry Standards:

MAFS.4.G.1 Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.

MAFS.4.G.1.1 Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.

MAFS.4.G.1.2 Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.

Angles Standards:

MAFS.4.MD.3.5 Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement.

MAFS.4.MD.3.5a An angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle is called a “one-degree angle,” and can be used to measure angles.

MAFS.4.MD.3.5b An angle that turns through n one-degree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees.

MAFS.4.MD.3.7 Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure.
