Great resource for the grades listed. However, I was attempting to use it to introduce a transformations unit to 8th grade and it was a bit too low for that. Thanks though. It is a really great resource, just not for my grade level.

Thank you Natalie! My students have absolutely loved this unit, especially my boys! My only suggestion is a dot in a corner or something. Some of my kids had difficulty with the concept of flip and were actually just sliding them over. Thank you for all your hard work!
