Geometry Fun With Points, Lines, and Angles

The girls made points with flat sprinkle dots. They liked the fact that they tasted good too. Then they labeled some of the points and connected them to make line segments. We also used spaghetti noodles to create and label line segments. In the above picture Jennifer has created two congruent line segments with noodles.

Next, we created points on a plane with the pins in this string art craft. The circle used as a pattern was a plane shape. The board was made by gluing corkboard between foam display board and covering with black felt.

Then we used embroidery floss to connect the points and made line segments and angles. The girls used their own ideas to make their designs. Below are their finished products. Pretty cool, huh?
