School: Cheltenham High School, Wyncote, PA
Planned By: Susan Greenwald
Original Author: Susan Greenwald, Wyncote
Objective: To have students identify key geometric terms and create a video to share their knowledge. Key terms are:

Point
Line
Plane
Obtuse Angle
Acute Angle
Right Angle
45 degree Angle
Opposite Rays
Pair of Supplementary Angles
Linear Pair
Pair of Complementary Angles
Vertical Angles

Because students are already well versed in these terms, the assignment will be to go out and find these represented in the real world.

Plan: Students will work in groups of 4 or less to find terms in the high school. They will be permitted to travel around the building to find terms, and will first story board their plan and location out on paper.
Once plans are set, students will use the Go-pro to go and video all specific terms. They will return and edit videos on WeVideo on their Chromebooks.

Once videos are created, students will upload to Google drive to be watched and shared with students in the high school, as well as around the world. The goal of the video creation is to showcase geometry in the US, as well as have students identify terms.

Assessment: Students will be assessed on finding the terms and highlighting them on their videos. Students that find all terms will receive full credit.
