Need a way to use math while learning about the United States of America? Students will graph points on a coordinate plane and it creates an outline of the United States. There is also a star on the Capital and the abbreviation(USA). The clever title of "Stars and Stripes" gives them a clue to what the picture will be.
I have included Student Instructions for both Quadrant One ONLY and instructions that include ALL four Quadrants! This is a great way to differentiate for your lower-level learners as well as your higher-level learners.
The points include ordered pairs with decimals such as (10, 4.5) and (0.25, 1.75).
This product includes:
For each version:
--A colored example of the finished picture.
--Student Instructions with the ordered pairs.
--A graph with the numbers and x- and y-axis labeled.
--A graph with the fractional grid lines labeled as well. This is also great for differentiation!

It is easy to print the points on one side and the graph on the back side to save paper! This is a great beginning of the year activity, End of the Year, Constitution Day, Substitute plans, "filler days", early finisher activity, and anchor activity!
This is hand drawn, not computer generated, so the points graphed work out exactly as the picture looks!

My students love to graph this and color it with their own designs! It makes a great bulletin board display! Have your students create this in collaboration with your other content areas while teaching about the states!
Common Core Aligned!
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane.
