Folding for Angles
Students will solve angle addition sentences using a folded paper model.
- Hold the folded paper teacher model up and ask your class to turn to a neighbor and tell them what it reminds them of and why (i.e. typical ideas include "origami" or "paper airplane").
- Call on students to share their ideas with the class.
- Open your model, draw lines along the creases, and announce that the class will be exploring ways to add these angles.
