These are reference cards for students to use when working with Scalene, Isosceles, & Equilateral triangles.
I use these cards as rewards, and students collect them throughout the year.
a triangle with three equal
sides and three 60 degree
angles; will freak out if
something is not perfect.
a triangle that has three
unequal sides; he doesn’t
care that he looks strange
a triangle that has two sides
of equal length . . . like an ice-cream cone!
How to assemble:
-Print on cardstock.
-Separate the group of 3 cards from the individual card at the bottom. Don't cut too close to the edge of the cards yet, having some extra white space makes glueing easier.
-Fold the cards in half.
-Glue the cards together. Make sure your glue goes all the way to the edge of the cards, otherwise they will peel apart. Stick glue is okay, spray adhesive is better.
-I like to laminate my cards at this point.
-Cut the cards out using a paper cutter.
-If you want to get really fancy, go to Hobby Lobby and buy a corner cutter that will smooth out your corners. This makes them look like real playing cards. 6th graders love to volunteer to do this job.
