In time for St Patrick's Day on March 17th - we have produced these five St Patrick's Day themed images mapped onto a four quadrant grid.
Engaging for students of all ages, but particularly within math at Grades 2, 3, 4 and 5, these activities provide the children with a range of secret images of growing complexity using coordinates within four quadrants in each of the designs.
The five designs are:
- Shamrock (easy level)
- Leprechaun hat (easy level)
- Pot of gold coins (medium level)
- Pot of gold and rainbow (challenging level)
- Leprechaun (challenging level)
The students have no idea what the designs are until they have completed plotting and joining all of the coordinates - then the secret is revealed and the students can color their designs to finish ready for St Patrick's Day celebrations. There is a clue on each of the coordinate sheets which allows students to predict what they might be revealing.
Great for differentiation as the activities develop in complexity, which also allows the students to work through each one at increasing difficulty, or allow them to select the level of challenge they wish to complete.
Each design is placed on a different grid for each creation - included within the resource. The leprechaun design has a different grid, also included, as it has eyes and buttons already plotted for the students. An answer key for each is also provided which allows the teacher to see quickly if the students have been accurate with their plotting. A line only answer key is provided as well as a color version to show students how they could look when colored and completed.
Preparation is easy - simply purchase, download, print and go!
Included within the Zip file:
- Answer Key of five designs (line design and color version)
- Five challenge sheets, each containing a different secret image for the students to investigate, plot and solve - and a clue to hint at what they could be creating
- Two coordinate grids
Great for St. Patrick's Day activities, early morning work, home learning and math centers - not to mention teaching coordinates in February/March to embed learning in a meaningful activity.
Our students loved using these grids, and we are pleased to place this product alongside our popular freebie product which explores coordinates in the first quadrant only.
