Your line plot resources
- Overview and instructions
- The cut-and-glue kit. Print it out on standard paper, trim it a little and put it together. Laminate it and you'll be able to use it year after year!
The cut-and-glue version can be trimmed to fit a standard flip-chart easel… approximately 27 x 34 inches (68 x 86 cm).
- The bulletin board kit. Print, trim and create a unique and engaging display that will capture students' attention.
- I also include a small version for you to 3-hole punch and put in a notebook. Your students will have access to the information even after you take down the anchor chart. Laminate and use it forever!
