This Thanksgiving Transformation puzzle is a high interest, interactive activity that will allow you to easily see if your students have mastered translations, reflections, and rotations on a coordinate plane. Students must use the given pre-image points, perform the stated transformations, and then plot the new image points to create a fun Thanksgiving picture puzzle which they can then color and decorate.
This can be used as an in class activity, home project or an assessment. Also perfect for math centers to review or a great activity to do when you have a substitute. It will definitely keep your class on task.
This activity can be purchased as part of a $5.00 bundle that includes 8 different puzzles including translations, reflections, rotations, and dilations at:
Common Core 8.G.A.3 - Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two-dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them.
