Students were given a double sided page where they cut on the dotted lines and folded on the solid ones. It created a four flap foldable where each flap was one of the four quadrants. I added the font so all they had to do was color it in.

When you open up each of the flaps it reveals that quadrant on a coordinate plane. On the inside of the flap is where students filled out information about that specific quadrant.

In the middle was grid paper where the students created the two number lines and labeled the different parts of the coordinate plane. We then practiced plotting and naming points in each of the quadrants.

For the right side of their notebooks I gave them two graphs, one blank and one with points. The top graph (blank) is where I gave them points and they had to plot them. The bottom graph (with points) is where the students had to practice naming them.

For homework that night I have them those fun sheets where they plot the points and it forms animals or easily recognizable objects. The kids loved these because they knew right way if they did it right or not. I found a few on MathCrush.

Here are the links to the foldable, it's two pages that you print off double sided. Everything lines up correctly. Enjoy!

DeleteThis foldable is exactly what I needed to review the coordinate plane with my Algebra 1 students. Thank you for posting!

ReplyDeleteIt makes me happy to know someone else can get use out of something I've made.

DeleteThis was perfect. Thank you for sharing these materials!

ReplyDeleteYou're Welcome! I'm glad someone else can use something I've made.

DeleteThis is an amazing activity Anya! Thank you so much for sharing your ideas. Could you possibly share the foldable that you used for the Coordinate Plane activity - it doesn't seem to be loading?

ReplyDeleteIt's loading on my end, not sure why it didn't load for you. If you want me to email you the documents I can do that, just send me an email at anyaostapczuk@gmail.com and I can get it to you right away.

ReplyDeleteThanks so much!

I would love to use this for my fifth graders. However I cannot get it to print right. Can you send it to me as one document by any chance?

ReplyDeleteThank you so much for this !

ReplyDeleteYou're Welcome! Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

DeleteHi Anya,
