Parallel and Perpendicular Lines Foldable

Tuesday, July 12, 2016
Below are pictures of my Parallel and Perpendicular Lines interactive notebook page.  I made this flip-book a month ago and I think these pages are going to be extremely helpful for my special education and ELL students.. I know that students are supposed to know this before they get to Geometry but, my students need the extra review.

I received inspiration for the steps of identifying whether two lines are parallel, perpendicular, or neither from Mrs. Atwoods blog post (Click Here). She has amazing interactive notebook pages and resources!

This flip-book fits perfectly in notebook without having to shrink it (if you lay it sideways).

I am planning to complete this whole flip-book on a block days (100 minutes). I'm going to break this flip-book up into two parts.

Part 1: We're going to review slope (first flap) and then we are going to practice with the following slope card sort. I already uploaded my Slopes Card Sort in a previous post (click here). 

Part 2: After the slope card sort, we are going to jump into parallel and perpendicular lines. Once our flip-book is complete, we are going to do another card sort. I will be uploading the other set later on this week to this post. 

If you can't tell, I have an extreme love for card sorts. :)

I feel like something is off with the flip-book though.... Thoughts? I haven't done this lesson before since I assumed that students remember how to do this, but every year I have to improvise and come up with last minute problems to review slope.

Here are the following files: 


  1. I love all your ideas! Do you have the card sort for parallel and perpendicular lines uploaded yet? I am doing that next week! Thanks :)

  2. Nice post! This is a very nice that I will definitively come back to more times this year! Thanks for informative post. Math Curriculum
