Middle schoolers explore the concept of slope in numerous ways and start to look at simple linear equations. They describe the slope in a variety of ways such as the steepness of a line, developing a ratio, using graphs, using similar triangles, and through ordered pairs. This instructional activity has an amazing collections of great ideas when it comes to exploring slope. 
Use prior knowledge to plot an ordered pair on a Cartesian plane. Children chart an original picture of themselves by charting their points. They also apply this skill to longitude and latitude. A quiz helps assess their understanding.
This resource is composed of five separate worksheets on ordered pairs. After plotting each ordered pair, learners label each point, connect the points to create a figure, identify the polygon type, find the perimeter and area of the polygon, and determine if the two figures on each page are congruent, explaining their reasoning. Using these five worksheets all at once would be overwhelming; however, they could be used for several distinct activities and assignments.
Fourth graders properly read and plot ordered pairs on a coordinate grid. They draw a letter of the alphabet on their own coordinate grid, using dots (or ?points?) and write the corresponding ordered pairs below their coordinate grid.
Students study how to graph ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. After a teacher demonstration, students work together to complete problems. They explain and share their answers. As an activity, they solve a mystery story about the coordinate plane.
Show learners that by comparing two ordered pairs, the distance between points on a map can be found. Make a copy of the town map shown in the video to pass out and use with the guided practice. Challenge learners with the extension activity that has them creating their own maps. The resource is the last in a series that uses coordinates for the vertices of a polygon and then finds the length of its side.  
Seventh graders investigate the concept of ordered pairs as found in Algebra. They are introduced to the data set that corresponds to the coordinate system. Also students practice the graphing the ordered pairs using the x and y axis.
Students investigate ordered pairs. In this math lesson, students plot and locate ordered pairs in a coordinate plane and are exposed to how to read and create a map.
Sinking ships, construction paper, coordinate planes, sounds like fun day in math class. Play the game Battleship with your class and reinforce the concept of graphing ordered pairs.
A one-minute clip shows how to graph ordered pairs, a definition, example, and process are provided. This video is not narrated and uses nothing but visual aids and written explanations. Great for visual learners.
In this math worksheet, students learn to graph ordered pairs. Students examine a graph with 3 labeled points and tell the ordered pairs for each. Students also plot 8 ordered pairs on a graph they draw themselves.
Students review ordered pairs. In this graphing instructional activity, students review ordered pairs with the teacher. This instructional activity includes a brief teacher script to help guide the students in understanding.
Ready to introduce your class to the coordinate plane? This website includes a detailed lesson plan that includes two interactive games to help learners practice graphing ordered pairs. The scripted discussion is a little cheesy and a little more direction might be necessary for the games, but would be an easy way to practice graphing online.
Designed for middle schoolers, this math resource requires learners to pour liquid into a variety of containers. They keep track of the amount of water poured in, the height of the water in the container, and they plot this information on a graph as an ordered pair. Groups of pupils work together to match up three completed graphs with the correct container. There is lots of good hands-on work, and mathematical discussion present.
Identifying the location of ordered pairs on coordinate planes is the focus in the math lesson presented here. In it, 4th graders are introduced to coordinate pairs, the x/y axis, and the techniques associated with this type of graphing. An example of student work is shown, and the coordinate pairs needed to create a smiley face on the grid are included. This would be a good lesson to employ when you are ready to introduce your kids to the world of coordinate graphing. 
For this geometry worksheet, 10th graders match ordered pairs to the correct quadrant on a coordinate plane. They tell in which quadrants x and y values will be positive or negative. There are 19 questions.
Elementary schoolers become points on a Cartesian Plane in their classroom. They review ordered pairs, positive and negative coordinates, quadrants, and the x and y axes. Pupils follow commands that help review vocabulary, such as "Everyone in quadrant I stand up." This is a clever approach to teaching math, especially for the wiggle-worms that have trouble sitting still!
Explore graphing ordered pairs. Learners identify and describe parts of a coordinate grid, graph ordered pairs, explore positiive and negative numbers, and create an ordered pair activity using a software program. Several web links are included.
What a great idea! The game "You Sank My Battleship" is perfect for understanding the coordinate plane and ordered pairs. Gung-ho battle masters plot ordered pairs using the coordinate plane to determine in which quadrant these ordered pairs lie. They show mastery of plotting ordered pairs to sink the opposing team's battleship.
Identify the coordinate points on an overhead using graph paper with houses placed at coordinate points. The class reads ordered pairs and locate ordered pair points as they play a game in which they are using a map to locate addresses. This comprehesive lesson plan even includes the handouts that you will need to implement it.
