Why Lesson Planet?
Young geometers engage in this fine lesson plan which has them use 45 and 90 degree angles to create triangles. The goal of this lesson plan is to have learners see the relationship between angles and the shape of a triangle. They design a "virtual path" using two different angles to help a ladybug reach a safe hiding place. These lessons, produced by Illuminations, always have excellent worksheets embedded in them to help facilitate successful implementation.
