I created this printable Venn Diagram template to use with Guess My Rule cards, but it could be used in so many different ways in the math classroom.
A couple of weeks ago, I was afraid that the lesson I had planned on Venn Diagrams wouldn’t take the entire 50 minute class period. I was trying really hard to think up some sort of extension activity we could do that would extend my students’ understanding.
That’s when I remembered that I had decks of laminated shape cards in three different colors and three different sizes in my filing cabinet.
I decided to take some of my 11 x 17 cardstock and print a Venn Diagram template on it.
Then, I slid each sheet of cardstock into one of my 11 x 17 dry erase pockets. If you are looking to save a bit of money, you can also pick up a package of 11 x 17 sheet protectors for a much cheaper price! They won’t be quite as durable, but students can still write and erase with their dry erase markers.
MATH = LOVE RECOMMENDS…
I cannot imagine teaching math without my dry erase pockets! They instantly make any activity more engaging and save me countless hours at the copy machine since I can use the same class sets of copies year after year.
Here are my current go-to recommendations:
Here’s the finished product. The left circle represents triangles. The right circle represents green cards.
Even though I was worried about running out of time and needing an extension activity, the lesson I had planned did end up taking the entire class period.
So, I never ended up using this with my students. Still, I thought I should still share in case it might inspire someone else.
