I can't scan my worksheets. I have been using a web site for a game it is http://www.harcourtschool.com/activi...s_flips_turns/

There is also a web site that I downloaded a worksheet from but I can't think of it right now.

Look up tessellations. They are an example of a slide. You could make an art project with the tessellations.

Afterwards, you can do a second project with a flip. Maybe they can make a pattern. Fold a piece of paper in half. Trace it on the left side. Then flip it again to trace on the second side.

For turns, you could do something similar to the second project.

If you do a google search: flips, slides, turns lesson plans

You will find a few links. I checked some. There are some good ideas. I didn't put any here because I'm not sure how it would fit in to your class.

Good Luck to you.

We play "Leader Says" in the gym or class to experience flip, turn ,slide.
I like to use rotate (instead of turn) as that seems to be the word they will eventually need to know in intermediate school.

Like Simon Says the students stand, face me (or a chosen leader) and move their bodies to the direction given. For instance, if the leader says slide they slide left or right (we also play this game to reinforce directions on a compass), or they slide east or west or north or south depending on the direction they begin.

We flip by turning around and we rotate east or west , north or south.

They love getting down to the last few kids!

It's fun to also introduce degrees of rotation...90degree turn east, 180 degree etc... One student made the discovery that 360 degree rotations equals two flips in a row! Great thinking!

I did a great activity that I got out of Mailbox Magazine. The kids loved it and all of them mastered the concept after this activity!

All you need for each child is a sentence strip, and trapezoid pattern block (with a tiny piece of tape to mark one side or mark it with an X in washable marker), and a pencil.

To start, have each student demonstrate a slide by dragging the trapezoid from one end of the strip to the other, a turn by placing his fingers on the shape and rotating his wrist clockwise, and a flip by picking up the shape and turning it over.

Next, have the student return the trapezoid to the left side of the strip and trace the shape. He slides, turns, and flips the shape as desired across the sentence strip, tracing with pencil each time.

Then he trades strips with a partner. Each partner works independently to write the name of each movement across the bottom of the strip.

Now this last part I did a little differently. I didn't have them switch papers, I just had the child label their own strips as they went along. You could do it either way, depending on the level your kids are at.

Good luck and have fun! Let me know how it works out!

If anyone needs another resource there is a great activity in rainforestmaths.com
To do it students have to try and hide a bug under a leaf by using flips, turns and slides. My students love it. It is in year 2 under flat geometry.
