High schoolers explore the concept of transformations.  In this transformations lesson plan, students identify and record ordered pairs of a leaf on a coordinate grid.  High schoolers rotate, reflect, and translate the leaf.  Students shrink and enlarge the leaf.  High schoolers determine the leaf's symmetry line.

Lesson Planet has been awesome to me. As a 1st year teacher I often spend so much time planning and researching materials that could help my students/classes learn. Lesson Planet has given me great access to emergency lesson plans and activities, video clips, and many more unit ideas to succeed.
