# Unit 7: Geometry

## Overview

Ever wondered how to teach geometry concepts in an engaging way to your 6th-grade students?

In this unit plan, students will first learn about coordinate graphing, quadrants, and calculating distances on coordinate planes. They will then progress to understanding the area of triangles and various quadrilaterals.

Each lesson helps students master the unit through artistic, interactive guided notes, check for understanding activities, and culminates with real-life examples exploring how geometry is used in the real world.

It's an exciting way to teach geometry concepts while comprehensively meeting 6th-grade Common Core standards.
