1. Open the web app for geoboards: https://apps.mathlearningcenter.org/geoboard/ 2. Use the square geoboard to create an acute, obtuse, or right triangle using the virtual rubber bands. 3. Take a snapshot of your work: computer: shift + command + 4 iPad: home button + power off button 4. Add the screenshot of your triangle to your Seesaw journal. Use the :draw: to identify each angle. Use the label to identify the type of triangle you created. 5. Add a caption to explain why your example is the type of triangle you say it is. For example: "This is a ______ triangle because it has....." 6. Repeat to add an example of each of the triangle. Acute Triangles: all the angles are acute angle and add up to 180º. Obtuse Triangles: two angles are acute angles and one obtuse angle. Right Triangles: two angles are acute angles and one angle is a right angle notes with a small blue box. 7.

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

The website for the geoboards is a free website from mathlearningcenter.com. It is also a free app for the iPads. Although students could label and draw on this app, I like the options Seesaw provides more for labels and drawing. https://apps.mathlearningcenter.org/geoboard/
