Creative Shapes

Pupils create a shape using four pattern blocks and then perform a translation, a rotation, and a reflection on the shape. Students must write an explanation of what the movement on the shape did to the original shape as well as identify which movement is an example of symmetry.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
