You don't have to talk about the Easter bunny or colored eggs this Spring. Have you students ever heard of Easter Island? Does it have anything to do with the Easter holiday? (spoiler: it doesn't) Easter Island is a fun topic and mini-lesson during the Easter season.
Students will design the symbolic Easter Island statues in this coordinate graphing activity. When all students adding a unique color schemes and shading techniques, you have one fun looking bulletin board! This could be used as a do now, an early finishers assignment, sub plans, homework, or simply a fun activity to do to welcome Spring.
In this graphing activity, students will practice plotting coordinates on 1 Quadrant OR all 4 Quadrants to create the Easter Island statues. Let students practice plotting ordered pairs and graphing on a coordinate plane at their skill level.
There are a total of 4 coordinate planes available for modified difficulty:
There are a couple decimals to look out for when designing the nose, great practice with rational numbers on the number line.
Graphing paper, coordinates, both answer keys, colored example, AND directions on how to achieve the realistic shading technique are included.
