Toothpick Triangles

Students draw a chart (included in the instructional activity) to use with their investigation. They review terminology of triangles and receive toothpicks to use in the instructional activity. 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.
