Cartesian Classroom

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!

Lesson Planet has helped me take ideas I have and make them more streamlined, creative and higher level. It is great to see how other teachers present the same topic in a multitude of ways!
