Plotting ordered pairs is what students will do in this 3 part "Mystery Design" math station. Ordered pairs are listed in Activity 1 and students need to plot these ordered pairs correctly on their coordinate grid to reveal a simple mystery design. Using what they've learned in Activity 1, students will create their own design and coordinating list of ordered pairs in Activity 2. Lastly, students trade with partners to draw the mystery design that matches their partner's list of ordered pairs.
All 3 activity sheets are included for this station, plus the mystery design sheet and the solution, a blank coordinate grid, and ideas for assessment and extension.
Please check out my other math stations and activities - I have others on this topic.
