This is the Notebook presentation for the first lesson in my work sample. It is a lesson on naming and measuring angles. I decided to use an art piece to provide sample angles rather than using the examples from the book. Trish suggested Sol Lewitt as an artist who uses lots of lines and angles and so the art piece in this lesson is a sample of his work. Another fun way to do this would be with a picture of a bridge or building with lots of varying angles to measure.
The first page introduces the topic and provides a warmup for students. We will already have spent a day pre-learning vocab so this should be a review from their definition worksheet. After providing time for students to complete the warmup on their own, we will go recreate the images on the Smart Board to verify understanding.
This page is Sol Lewitt’s work. I will demonstrate naming and measuring of angles by using the Notebook tools to highlight chosen angles from the image. I will then copy them onto page 3, name them and use the protractor tool to measure them. As guided practice student volunteers can perform the same task.
