Points, Lines and Planes

Did this one a few weeks ago with my geometry kids.  Nothing super fancy, but just a little chart to get down the definitions of points, lines, planes and the relationships between them.  These were on two separate ISN right side pages.

This was on the first page.


It flips open to some more info underneath.


The next day we did this page. The inside has the relationships between lines and plans and info about their intersections.  The outside defines and gives examples of collinear and coplanar points.

  1. Sarah, Thanks to Pinterest, I found your blog and several others. What inspiration! I really like this idea of ISN, had not heard of it until this summer, so please allow me a moment of ignorance and help me understand how this is different from having the students draw these charts in their notebooks? Is there "something" about putting the information on a chart and inserting that chart into the notebook or is it simply that the students organize the information in a chart? Again, just totally new to the ISN concept and super excited about integrating into my classroom this year. Thanks!

  2. Aw I'm glad you found your way over here! This chart may not be the best example of what makes the interactive student notebook different, but we also put a lot of things like foldables, flash cards, packets and things of that nature that would easily get torn out of a three ring binder. I use the ISN so that everything is super organized and will last.

  3. I'm in love with the graphic organizer you used for all of this. I'm definitely stealing it. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Oh no really? It seems to be working ok for me. All of the files are saved as pdfs so I think that you need to have adobe reader (which is free)..any chance that could be it?

  6. I am curious what type of output page you used for this. Was it a practice worksheet of some kind. Thanks!

    1. Yes the left side was just a worksheet, not all something fabulous. It was just a textbook practice sheet that went along with that section.

  7. Hello Sarah! I feel technologically challenged! I tried to open this at school and I cannot! Do you have it elsewhere? Thanks so much! You truly are an inspiration!

    1. Maybe try on a different computer, sometimes school networks have file sharing sites blocked
