Life-size Coordinate Plane

To help my students conceptualize the Coordinate Plane and how it could be used in real life, we decided to transform our classroom into our very own Coordinate Plane! The students were responsible for working together to determine the best way to do this. After creating the Coordinate Plane with black duct tape and labeling the axes and quadrants, I asked them to place items in the room on specific coordinate points. I left the tape on the floor for the rest of the year so they would always have a visual!
