While studying geometry, have your students play The Eyeballing Game. Players adjust a line segment to bisect an angle, form a parallelogram, or several other tasks. It only takes a few minutes and it’s a good way to see if your students understand basic geometric ideas.
Current and historical photos can be found at LIFE – Your World in Pictures.
