Coordinate Grids will be a favorite math topic of your students with these exciting activities:
--Coordinate Grid Treasure Hunt: Students work in pairs to follow the directions which create four letters on four grids. They will unscramble the four letters to spell out where a treasure is located in your classroom. My students absolutely love a treasure hunt!
--Coordinate Grid Game: Students will roll dice to create their (x,y) coordinates and try to get 3 in a row. If they land on one of the dreaded circles, their opponent gets to replace them! My students BEG FOR THIS GAME even after our unit on grids is long over!!!
--Where's Your Teacher? In this clues activity, students follow the coordinate grid clues to figure out where their teacher has gone for the day!
--Coordinate Riddle: Everyone loves a good math riddle! The coordinates spell out the answer to a riddle!
--EXTRA: I included instructions as to how I create a floor coordinate plane/coordinate grid. My students love to become human points!
Time Breakdown: For my students, the treasure hunt takes about 10-12 minutes. The teacher location clues activity takes about 10 minutes. The riddle takes about 10 minutes. The floor grid can take an entire class period (45 minutes for me) and the dice game can take as long as you will allow because they don't want to stop! :) I usually give them 20 minutes to play.
