Students will create Halloween designs with this coordinate geometry activity.
Have students create their own designs on a coordinate grid, using a Halloween theme. Students will practice plotting points, identifying coordinates on a grid, labeling a coordinate grid etc.
I have included:
-2 Student printable sheets (one asks students to create a basic design; the second also requires students to translate, rotate or reflect the design)
-5 mystery Halloween designs that my students have created -the lists of coordinates and the actual pictures
The pictures that I've included are at varying levels of difficulty for built-in differentiation. There is a witch's hat, a candy piece, a jack-o-lantern, a witch's face and a witch and cat on a broom.
Your students will love this combination of Math and creativity - just in time for Halloween!
