I was perusing Twitter this morning and saw some choice boards people made from Stephanie Howell’s (@mrshowell24) Make & Take Session on YouTube. The first block gives students the choice to watch a video or look at an infographic. I do the exact same thing in my classes and realized I have only shared one unit of InfoNotes with you. Hopefully, over the next few months, I will share all my InfoNotes will you so you can use these choice boards too.
Ok, here are my notes for Transformations & Symmetry. I included some animations so students could see the transformation happening. This is also how we talk about transformations in the comic and stop motion project (linked below).
I also have an application slide you can use with students.
My FAVORITE part of the transformation unit is the Comic and Stop Motion project. It really brings the transformations to life in a fun way.
You can also do some Tessellations with this unit. I have created some animations to help with those too.
And as a review or even an alternative to an assessment, I have created a transformation escape room. This year, when I used this escape room, a girl looked up and said, “this is really fun!” The student sitting next to her said, “don’t tell her that, it will go to her head.” The he grinned a huge grin at me. I don’t know what he meant, but I’m glad they enjoyed it.
I hope you find this useful. Please check out all of Stephanie’s Make & Take sessions. She is truly a treasure for the teaching community.
