Using a combination of translations, reflections and rotations, students are required to design a personal logo that represents themselves! This project includes student-facing instructions (including success criteria), a graphic organizer for planning, a handout to record their analysis, and a Thinking/Knowledge-Understanding/Application/Communication rubric (includes the list of relevant Ontario specific expectations for grades 5 and 6).
I made this task when teaching a grade 5/6 split class, so it is applicable to both. You can remove references to either grade if you are not teaching a split class.
