Educate your students on the concept of Reflections with this progression of activities. Students will begin with the notes on reflections. This will allow them to be able to look back on the notes to complete the reflection activities that follow.
The first worksheet directs students to reflect a given point over either the X or the Y axis.
The second worksheet directs the students to plot an ordered pair, and then reflect over either the X or the Y axis.
Finally, students are directed to plot either three or four ordered pairs to form a simple shape. Then they are asked to reflect each shape over either the X or the Y axis.
This progression allows the students to practice at their own pace and enables the teacher to see where the student is struggling early on in the process.
