appropriately
challenge them.

Students will...
1. Review acute,
right, obtuse
using body
movements with
partner.
2. Scavenger
hunt around
school and
outside. Look for
angles in real
world and take
pictures.
3. Upload
pictures and
classify them on
linoit graphic
organizer.
4. View class
linoit page and
argue whether
each picture is in
the correct
category.

Students will
create an analogy
between the
Quadrilateral
Hierarchy and a
family tree, then
come up with their
own metaphor.

Students will
1. Review
Quadrilateral
Hierarchy with

activity (students
add on to the
persons paper
before them to
complete
hierarchy).
2. Complete

3. Table talk about
Quadrilateral
Argument (Who is
correct? Why?)
4. Create a skit
similar to
Quadrilateral
Argument.
Perform.

Students will be
presented with
an ethical
dilemma about
the safety of
self-driving cars,
then use use
creative
problem-solving
to come up with
a solution.

Last week,
students
problem solved
to come up with
their own
solution to car
accidents.
Today, they will
use their
knowledge of
Geometry to
design a testing
facility for selfdriving cars and
program a
Sphero to
navigate the
track. All steps
and rubrics for
this PBL can be
found on my
class website.
