I had pre-cut colored paper into 8 pieces so their 2 triangles would fit into the top two-thirds of the page. I like using the brad to show them that the triangles will not always have the same orientation.

### Triangles: Writing Congruence Statements

To explain the basics of triangle congruence, I created an activity (2-up) for the INB. I continue to push my kids into reading and following directions without me explaining them or them asking a million questions. I do remind them to "read and follow each step before moving on to the next one".

I think the next time we use this activity I might have them cut out the table at the bottom of the worksheet and glue it into their INB instead of having them drawing a table like mine above. If so, I will have to revamp the steps on the activity.
