Combine a giant shower curtain coordinate plane with a couple of fly swatters for an engaging coordinate plane fly swatter game to practice graphing ordered pairs.

Fly Activity for Graphing Ordered Pairs

I created this fly activity to introduce my students to the history of the coordinate plane and give them much-needed practice graphing ordered pairs.

Parts of the Coordinate Plane Foldable

I was inspired by Ms. Haley and her wonder Journal Wizard blog to create a new and improved parts of the coordinate plane foldable!

DIY Shower Curtain Coordinate Plane

I want to share with you directions for creating my new favorite teaching tool – a shower curtain coordinate plane.

Parts of the Coordinate Plane Magnets

I created these parts of the coordinate plane magnets for my classroom, and I want to share the files with you so you can create your own set as well.

Graphing Ordered Pairs Graphic Organizer

I created this graphing ordered pairs graphic organizer to review the coordinate plane with my algebra students. I actually ended up using it with both my Algebra 1 and my Algebra 2 students.

Parts of the Coordinate Plane Graphic Organizer

I created this parts of the coordinate plane graphic organizer a few years ago for my beginning of year Pre-Calculus review.

Coordinate Plane Foldable

I created this coordinate plane foldable for my Algebra 2 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. I used it as an opportunity to review key vocabulary terms that we would be using throughout the year while graphing equations.
