Motion detector lights and zones

Author: Scolab | Publish on October 6, 2022

Grades 5 and 6


Our Math Maestro Louis has a very interesting activity for your students and an original way to learn! In the activity, the students draw and then measure the angles of a detection zone created by five motion detector lights.


The students work in teams of 2 on the classroom floor or on Bristol board if the idea of drawing on the floor leaves you a little bewildered! Treat yourself to this wonderful turnkey activity and put your students to work–after all, they’re the learners!


This activity includes a document for you to project on the IWB (Motion detector lights and zones), a protractor to print, and instructions on how to lead the activity in class.


Math Maestro Louis will have other original activities to suggest throughout the year. Stay tuned!
