              Reflecting Shapes on a Grid

              Students learn about reflecting shapes on a grid using horizontal, vertical and diagonal mirror lines.  As learning progresses they describe the line of symmetry as a straight line graph.The start recaps reflective and rotational symmetry as this is needed throughout the remainder of the lesson.  The plenary challenges students to reflect an object in a vertical, horizontal and diagonal mirror line.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to reflect an object in a vertical and horizontal mirror line on a grid.
              • Most students should be able to reflect an object in a vertical, horizontal and diagonal mirror line on a grid.
              • Some students should be able to perform and describe vertical, horizontal and diagonal reflections on a grid.
