Objective: Learn basic geometrical terms playing games of charades.
Materials: Charades cards with geometrical terms on them, pictures of each geometrical term so that the students can learn what each of them are before the game begins. A prize is needed for the student that wins the most amount of points at the end of the ...view middle of the document...
The student who is up will draw a Charades card from the pile and act out whatever geometrical term is on the card. The student who is acting out the term has two minutes to get the crowd to guess what they are acting out. Students can raise their hands and guess what the person is trying to act out. The student that guesses the term correctly first wins a point. The student that acts out the term and gets someone in the crowd to guess what he or she is doing wins a point as well. I will keep account of each student’s point balances. Each student will get a turn regardless of who guesses the right answer.
Cards: These are the following cards that students can choose: Parallel lines, line, line segment, intersecting lines, ray, right angle, acute angle, obtuse angle
Accompanying Lesson Plan: Students will learn the geometry terms definitions, and what each term looks like in a picture before the game is played. The students will use their creativity to create the geometry term that they draw with their bodies in the game of Charades.
