Key words: Math, Geometry, Transformations, Pentominoes
Student pentomino sets help students deepen geometric understanding.
In this activity students will practice transformations including slides (translations), flips (reflections), and turns (rotations).
This set includes12 pages of pentominoes with 8 on each page. Each pentomino can be printed on its own sheet of color paper so that each is unique. With a pack of paper from Michaels, I made each of my students their own set.
Included is an info sheet with the names of the shapes and the informal and formal names of transformations.
There are also two pages of pentomino designs for students to explore.
The pentominoes are standard 1 inch size and can be used with store bought pentomino pattern cards.
