Students translate, rotate and reflect figures on quadrant 1 of the coordinate plane in this collaborative activity that doubles as classroom decor. Once a pennant is complete, it can be hung along a string in your classroom to show the world that, "Hey, we know how to transform figures!"
*This pennant is geared towards students in grade 5. If you need a pennant for older students, this Geometric Transformations Pennant
is perfect for students learning about transformations on all quadrants of the coordinate plane.
There are 24 pennants in this activity. 10 pennants ask students to write which transformation between two shapes is shown on the grid. The next 12 pennants ask students to translate, reflect or rotate shapes and give the coordinates of the transformed figures. This gives students practice finding coordinates along with transforming figures.
Included are 24 pennants that each ask students to transform a 2-dimensional figure. Also included is a full answer key showing what each pennant will look like when completed correctly. Each group of students can be given a set of pennants, scissors and either glue, tape or a stapler. Students can be in charge of cutting out the pennants. Groups can compete to see which group can complete the most pennants or your entire class can add pennants to one string as they complete each one. You may also choose to have your students color their pennants to add to your classroom decor.
