Paper Folding Activity

Triangle congruence and similarity get a grounding in the physical world in a unique hands-on activity. Young geometers work to apply abstract concepts about angle measure and ratios to prove relationships between triangles they have created by folding paper. Questions asking the learners to make connections and predictions about the triangle relationships given other parameters, round out the activity. A great capstone activity to pull together a triangle unit.

I am currently a student teacher. I drive an hour and a half to the school I teach at each day. Thus, I do not have extra time on my hands! Lesson Planet has saved me a lot of time by helping me find worksheets which are very fitting to my lesson!
