This fun practice activity will allow students to put their knowledge of coordinate systems, coordinate graphing, and ordered pairs to work creating a mystery picture. Students plot points from a list of ordered pairs and then connect the dots to form a figure, which turns out to be a cardinal bird. The coordinate plane includes positive numbers only. A key is included to show how the finished figure should appear.
Four pages are included in the PDF file: a cover showing a colored version of the final picture, a coordinate list, a blank graph, and a completed graph answer key.
