(C) Four Corners Monument
(D) Hawaiian Volcanoes
(E) Times Square

1. Transformation Mystery Trip Map (with grid lines)
2. Six different sets of instructions for students to follow, leading them to one of the six mystery destinations
3. Answer key for each of the six sets of instructions
4. Teacher instructions and tips
To help differentiate, the first three sets of instructions only include translations and reflections. The final three sets of instructions include translations, reflections, and rotations.
