This project took my students about 5 class periods to complete. Students are given a blank coordinate plane (quadrant 1) and must design their own animal head by plotting and connecting ordered pairs. They will then list each ordered pair they used to make their animal. To extend this activity, I encouraged students to use halves to make the shape of the animals head more accurate and to provide them additional practice locating points.
My students loved this project, and it can be easily adapted to designing other things besides just animals. Students have to first do a rough draft, so there final draft is free of error. A rubric is included, as well as an example I displayed for my class.
