26 ) Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures. [4-G1]

[DLIT] (4) 27 :
21) Develop, test, and refine prototypes as part of a cyclical design process to solve a simple problem.

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.
