ELEMENTARY PROJECTS (Grades 3 to 5)
Coordinate Projects Include:
1. Jack-o-Lantern (Color Grid)
2. Halloween Bat (on a 20 x 15 Coordinate Grid)
3. Jack-o-Lantern (on a 20 x 15 Coordinate Grid)
4. Spider Web (on a 20 x 15 Coordinate Grid)
5. Pumpkin Writing Worksheet
These coordinate graphing projects are fun for the student and make great bulletin board ideas as well. These projects can be used for Halloween. Students will use their knowledge of coordinate graphing and ordered pairs to work creating drawings of a bat, a jack-o’-lantern and a spider web. This will be created by plotting ordered pairs and then connecting them with straight lines. There is also a jack-o’-lantern as a colored grid and a pumpkin writing worksheet
These activities can be a class project or something to be worked on independently when time allows. They also work as extra credit assignments or when there is a substitute teacher.
These projects are for the beginning coordinate graphing student. The graphs consist of points in the first quadrant using ordered pairs with whole numbers. When finished, they can use markers, colored pencils or other medium to enhance the project.
Included in this download is:
1. Coordinate graph paper for plotting (with both a light and a dark grid)
2. Coordinate paper for a colored grid
3. Coordinate list of points to plot
4. Full sized answer keys
5. Samples of the completed projects in color
6. Pumpkin outline for the writing assignment
Instructional Materials Includes:
1. Student directions for plotting coordinates
2. Directions for plotting coordinates in the First Quadrant.
If you like this project, please let us know. There are over 200 projects covering the entire school year and some projects which are cross curricular (Sports, Patriotism, Seasons, Holidays, History, Landmarks, Foreign Language and Science). Lessons begin at 4th grade and are appropriate for the Middle School and some for High School students. These projects have been used successfully at both the Elementary and Middle School levels.
