This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 14, Unit 3, Grade 6. Provide extra practice in naming locations using ordered pairs by playing a game on the coordinate plane where students try to guess the locations of their opponents' points. Divide students into small groups, and provide each group with one of the ordered pair scenarios below. Students read their scenarios and describe how the ordered pair is being used, indicating what defines the first coordinate and what defines the second coordinate.
