slides, flips and turns
Old 02-15-2007, 05:47 PM
 

I just did this lesson last week. I started by having my kids on the floor and having them physically slide, flip and turn on the floor. Then I gave them a card that they drew themselves from the front on the front and from the back on the back. Then we did the 3 movements using these cards on their desks. Last I had them do the quilt challenge from the mathwire website. They cut out squares that are divided into 2 triangles (called half square triangles in quilting) and try to turn and slide them to match the quilt square patterns on display.
