Many students get lost trying to figure out how a shape is moving about a point or the origin during transformations. Allowing students to physically move a shape on the coordinate plane can help create that visual understanding. Covering part of 8th grade math standard 8.G.3, this is a great way to have students practice rotations with coordinates. Shapes line up to the coordinates after cut-out. Worksheet provides questions for students to practice. Answer sheet included.
If shapes cut ahead of time, I can easily see this being modified as a math center with half of the questions.
If you laminate the graphs, the students can label the shapes on the coordinate plane with Expo or VisaV pens.
Two shape templates are provided for teacher preference and convenience.
