Transformations Project

As I posted before, my kids have been struggling with transformations, specifically rotations.  I created this project in the hopes that creating an actual template to move around as they transform would help them to understand it a little better.  Here are some of my favorite creations:

The kids had to create a template on the coordiante plane, then start with it in the same three spots and translate it, reflect it, and rotate it around.  I loved this project!

Here are the instructions I gave for the project.
