To Prepare This Resource

Please note this activity downloads as a PDF worksheet. Because an answer key is also included, we recommend printing one copy of the file first, then making photocopies of the worksheet for students to complete.

You can also turn this teaching resource into a sustainable activity! Print a few copies on cardstock and slip them into write and wipe sleeves. Students can record their answers with a dry-erase marker, then erase and reuse.

Have students create a graph in their notebooks with numbers 1-10 on both the x and y axes. Provide the coordinates and have students plot the points on their paper.
