Product Description
Four Quadrants (Grid 30 x 30 Portrait: [-15 to 15] )
    Uses fractional points with 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 [ex.: (4 1/2, 6) ]
    Uses fractional points [ex.: (13 1/2, -2 1/2) ]

    Please Note: The graph paper is included for all projects.

These coordinate graphing projects are fun for the student, make a great bulletin board display and are ideal for reviewing coordinate graphing skills.

Students will use their knowledge of coordinate graphing and ordered pairs to create drawings of the Constellations as they appear in the Northern Hemisphere. There are four drawings, one for each season. They will be created by plotting ordered pairs and then connecting them with straight lines.

This activity can be a class project or something to be worked on independently when time allows. It also works as an extra credit assignment or when there is a substitute teacher.

The graphs consist of points in the four quadrants using ordered pairs with several points using the fractions 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4. There are a few points where both the x-coordinate and y-coordinate use a fraction (Ex.: 2 1/2, 4 1/2). When finished, they can use markers, colored pencils or other medium to enhance the project.

If you like this project, please let us know. There are many projects covering the entire school year and some projects are cross curricular (Sports, Patriotism, Seasons, Holidays, History, and Science). Lessons begin at 2nd grade and are appropriate for the Elementary School, Middle School and some for High School students. These projects have been used successfully at both the Elementary and Middle School levels.

NCTM Standards
Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems.

Common Core State Standards
CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.A.1 Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).
