This project can be used for honoring those heroes who gave so much for us. It is a challenging project. It has been done with 6th graders but they needed help. Students will put their knowledge of coordinate systems, coordinate graphing and ordered pairs to work creating a drawing of the flag being raised during the Battle of Iwo Jima. This 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. Looks great on a bulletin board, too.
This project is for the intermediate student and advanced student. The graph consists of points in the first quadrant using ordered pairs with whole numbers and many fractional points using the fractions 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 and 3/4 for detail. When finished, they can use markers, colored pencils or other medium to enhance the project.
This lesson includes coordinate graph paper for plotting, a coordinate list, a full sized answer key and a sample of the completed project in color.
If you like this project please let me know. There are over 200 projects covering the entire school year and some projects are cross curricular (Sports, Patriotism, Seasons, Holidays, History, Landmarks and Science). Lessons begin at 4th grade and are appropriate for the Middle School and some for High School students. These projects have been used successfully at both the Elementary and Middle School levels.
