# Coordinate Grids

## Khan Academy:  Video Lessons and Interactive Practice

1. VIDEO lesson #1: Coordinate Plane– graphing points-
2. VIDEO lesson #2: Word Problems on the Coordinate Grid- working with points on a map, figuring out distance between points.

## Game-based Lessons:  I can read a coordinate pair and place it exactly on the coordinate plane/grid.

1. Ladybug Coordinates– move the ladybug to the correct location when given the coordinates, focuses on over and up (Quadrant I only)
2. Catch the Fly– practice WRITING coordinate in ALL 4 quadrants (6th grade standard, not 5th)
3. Gopher Game– University of New Mexico’s Math Snacks. (6th grade standard with all 4 quadrants)
4. Stock the Shelves– Mr. Nussbaum’s game using ALL 4 coordinates. This is a drag-and-drop game
