Slides, Flips, and Turns

I teach first grade and will be teaching slides, flips, and turns soon. I am looking for an engaging lesson, for my class this year has to be "involved." They are very "touchy" and "excited." (This is only my second year of teaching, so I don't have many "great" lessons!) Thanks, in advance!

I teach second and here's what I do when I teach it. I use an overhead and connecting cubes. I also give each one in the class 5-6 connecting cubes and have them make the shape I do. Then we practice doing the slides, flips and turns. I do it, they do it. After practicing then I show them the shape, turn off the projector, hide my hand and do a slide flip or turn. They tell me what I did. Afterward they do a worksheet on it and most of the time they will all get it right! -|--

I think I'm missing what you all are talking about. Slide? Flip? Turn? I don't believe we teach our first graders things like that... or maybe we call it something else? It definitely sounds interesting. Can either of you explain it in better detail? What are they practicing exactly? Thanks!

vateacher,
It has to do with geometry and how you can manipulate shapes. I think some call it tessalation.
