End of Year Activity: Angry Birds

An alternative to the Geometry Activity, I used the quadratic activity Angry Birds. Each group gets data on a bird in different forms - such as an incomplete table, equation, graph, a list of key features etc. They have to graph and decide which bird hits the king pigs (the baddies).

This year they took it to a new level (as you can see from the previous attempt)! I was impressed with their information, but also their execution on the posters - as you can see below!


They individually came together to created an eye catching final display.

What you need for this activity is: graph paper, coloured paper, sticky tape, coloured pencils/markers, instruction sheets. The instruction sheets I used were credited to Sergio Alvarez. There different sets (1st, 2nd and 3rd edition) which have the same set up but different trajectories. An example of the instructions/worksheet can be found here.
