Parallel and perpendicular lines
I used this PowerPoint with year 6 and asked the children to discuss where they could see parallel or perpendicular lines. Then we discussed the pictures and outlined that parallel lines don't always have to be straight as long as they are the same distance apart and never meet. \nI followed this by using parallel and perpendicular labels and allowed the children to find examples around the classroom.
