These lesson plans on coordinate points and ordered pairs help children practice drawing coordinate points on a grid and listing ordered pairs for those coordinate points. The project promotes creativity by allowing children to make their own robot prior to using those math concepts. Because children have the freedom to make a robot as complicated or simple as they like, the activity is automatically differentiated for students in terms of complexity and time management capabilities.

There are extension activities included you can do with this project to review terms such as congruent, similar, area, perimeter, acute obtuse and right angles, as well as parallel, perpendicular and intersecting lines.

This packet includes:
✅ 3 days of activities that go towards the final project
✅ A list of common student problems and solutions for the teacher to troubleshoot
✅ A list of extension activities to review the above geometry terms
✅ A rubric for grading the project
✅ A sample picture of a robot with a list of coordinate points that can be made into an overhead projection sheet
✅ A worksheet to assess the skills of plotting coordinate points and writing ordered pairs for given points (includes answer key)

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
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).
Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.
Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
A square with side length 1 unit, called “a unit square,” is said to have “one square unit” of area, and can be used to measure area.
