Explore planes, points, lines, and angles in this unit. Hands-on activities will include making use of strings, a collage, magazines, and Twizzlers to work with and identify planes, points, lines, and angles. Worksheets and a video are also included to reinforce the concepts. This unit is designed to last one week, depending on how often you teach math.
While we live in a 3-dimensional world, there are only two dimension on a plane. A plane is a flat surface with no thickness. Learn more about planes and see examples in this short lesson.
A point is an exact location. Learn more about points in this lesson.
