Use all four quadrants of the coordinate plane to graph a deer. Your students will initially think "How easy!" and then quickly figure out that it is much harder than it looks!
We use this and others to lead into the Picto Creation Project (where they make their own).
-page of coordinate with instructions
-outline sketch of what deer should look like on coordinate plane
-picture of colored deer on coordinate plane
-numbered graph paper for lower level learners
-unnumbered graph paper for challenge, or higher level learners
***YOU CAN DIFFERENTIATE THIS TO (+,+) GRID ONLY IF YOU WISH FOR STUDENTS WHO CAN NOT NAVIGATE ALL 4 QUADRANTS YET****
To do this we enlarge a (+,+) grid on 11x17 paper and of course have to give new coordinate to fit.
