Erin Go Bragh and Happy St. Patrick's Day! Capture your students' enthusiasm for the holiday and use it to get them engaged in math learning. Your students will put their knowledge of coordinate systems, coordinate graphing, and ordered pairs to work creating a mystery picture with a seasonal theme for St. Patrick's Day. Students plot points from a list of ordered pairs and then connect the dots to form a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
The coordinate plane includes positive numbers only. There are seven pages included: cover, teaching notes, a page listing coordinates to be plotted, a blank graph, a completed graph page answer key, a colored version of the completed figure, and a copyright statement. This is an easy ordered pairs activity, so it's a good starting point for beginners or intermediate learners. You may also want to check out the jack-o-lantern graph
, which is another coordinate graphing activity for beginners.
