PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Reflection Discovery is a fun medieval themed activity that will have your students investigating what happens when a figure is reflected over the x-axis or the y-axis on a coordinate plane. Students will reflect points over the y axis as they complete a symmetrical Coat of Arms. Then they will compare the pre and post image points and make observations on what effect the reflection had on the coordinates. Afterwards they make a conjecture about reflecting a point over the x axis. This activity will definitely get your students off to a successful start in working with reflections. Also, your students will love coloring their completed Coat of Arms in their own creative, unique way. My 8th grade students always enjoy this activity.
