Free Game Teaches Parallel & Perpendicular
Today we played a similar game from the Math Learning Center, "Dots & Lines," that gives kids opportunity to explore the terms parallel & perpendicular. Players take turns spinning either perpendicular or parallel lines to indicate the direction in which to place their rubberbands. As squares are made, they are captured with game markers. You'll find it here, under Geometry, Supplement C1 Parallel, Perpendicular & Intersecting.
By the time we were done, my student thoroughly understood parallel & perpendicular. And we had a great time in the process. Enjoy!
