Developing Similarity

Students study the properties of right triangles and similar triangles. They make up a right triangle of their own, and explain how to make other triangles (both bigger and smaller) that have the same sized angles, and how to tell if two triangles are similar by looking at the length of the sides.

I have been told by seasoned educators not to "re-invent the wheel" when coming up with ideas for lessons. So true!! Lesson Planet has a wealth of sources and ideas from some of the greatest teaching minds that are out there...what a blessing to have a resource such as Lesson Planet, to turn to. I am even planning to contribute a lesson or two myself. My daughter is in a teacher education program and I have introduced her to the "Planet". We're spreading the news!
