Let's Make a Coordinate Plane Foldable

Do you want to create a coordinate plane foldable?

I love using foldables in the classroom as a change of pace.  Better yet, students love them too!  

This foldable takes up minimal space in your interactive math notebook when complete.  It is a great resource to refer to all year!

Check out some pictures of the completed foldable:



Condensed Cover

How can you make it?

  • First, make sure that you cut your graph paper so it is a perfect square.  
  • Next, fold all four corners to the middle. 
  • Write the Quadrant Numbers on the Outside.  
  • Then, draw an x- and y-axis on the inside.  
  • After that, show examples of points in all quadrants and on the x- and y- axis.  
  • Be sure to include the positive and negative directions.
  • To get the first picture that says, “Coordinate Plane”, fold quadrants I and II down on top of quadrants III and IV. 

I hope you can use this foldable in your classroom.  Please let me know how it goes and if you come up with any ideas that I may have forgotten.
