My fifth graders just finished their ordered pairs projects, and I am absolutely amazed by their creativity!
The assignment asked that kiddos create a picture that included a minimum of five shapes, used only straight lines, and was located in all four quadrants.
Students also had to create an organized table for each shape that included the quadrant number and ordered pair for each point. This paper would later be used as a directions page for another student to recreate their picture.
Take a look at their amazing work!
For board work the next day, each kiddo was given a blank four quadrant graph and another student’s direction page. It was so much fun to see how the images were redrawn. Some directions were spot on (all ordered pairs and quadrants were accurate) and the redrawn picture looked identical to the original. Others though, not so much!
I will definitely be doing this project again next year!
