Are you introducing or reviewing the coordinate plane with your students? Check out these 8 fun and engaging coordinate plane activities I have used over the years with my algebra students to introduce them to the cartesian plane.
Coordinate Plane Activities
Coordinate Plane Fly Swatter Game
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!
Creating a 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.
