Title: If I Built a Car
Description: Through literature, students will identify and take notes on the design process Jack uses as he designs a car for specific purposes. With a partner, students will work through the design process to digitally develop, test, and refine the prototype of a car for a specific user’s needs. Students will use a digital resource such as Sketchup, Paint 3D, Tinkercad, or another free online resource to practice creating the design using points, lines, line segments, and angles.   This activity was created as a result of the DLCS COS Resource Development Summit.

Title: Animating Angles
Description: ChatterPix Kids is a fun, kid friendly app for the iPad and iPhone that can be used to enhance a geometry lesson on angles.  Students will choose an angle (right, straight, obtuse, or acute), draw the angle on the graph, color it.  Students will identify a real-world object with the same angle attributes, take a picture, and draw a line on the picture for a mouth. Then, students will record their voice giving the measurement of their angle and relate their angle to one real-world object identifying common attributes such as; angle size, side length, side relationships.  In this activity, students can work collaboratively in pairs or alone. This learning activity was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science University, GEMS-U Project.
