Toothpick Triangles

Students draw a chart (included in the lesson) to use with their investigation. They review terminology of triangles and receive toothpicks to use in the lesson. Beginning with three toothpicks, students form a triangle. They complete the appropriate section of their chart and repeat the process using four, five, six...toothpicks. When time is up, the results are discussed.
