(10 minutes)
  • Prior to the lesson, cut out lines, line segments, and rays from colored construction paper.
  • Without identifying the diagrams by name, tell the similarities and differences between the diagrams.
  • Then, identify each diagram by name.
  • Tell your students that a ray has a point on one end, a line has no end points, and a line segment has two end points.
