Geometric Self Portraits!
One of my favorite units to teach in math is Geometry. I love it mostly because even students who struggle with computation can do REALLY well with geometry. I find that this is a GREAT confidence building unit. It never fails that this unit falls around mid-year and offers those lower students an opportunity to go into the second half feeling better about their mathematical abilities.
What I have created is a simple little GLYPH activity which kids LOVE and it offers an amazing way to assess student's understandings of the key concepts. This activity can be done in class in a large group (which I love) or this fun activity can be given as homework!
Furthermore, it allows students to be creative during math time which is always a PLUS!
This activity can be purchased for JUST $1 at my Teacher Pay Teacher Store:
