A treasure map using the 4 quadrants. Using the initial co-ordinate clue the children find the first letter (O). This letter then gives them the clue to the next co-ordinate and so on until the arrive at the final letter (P).
The ones who could, managed it very quickly and could then go on to design their own, and it was very easy to pick out the ones who couldn't and give them assistance. They all managed it eventually.
A quick Co-ordinates starter activity. <br /><br />Choose a kid to give a co-ordinate, you *click* that square, and a symbol will appear. Either a dolphin, shark, treasure chest, coin piles or a 'nothing symbol'.<br /><br />There are two variations, depending on how much time you have. A 6x4 grid or a 8x6 grid.<br /><br />(Note: If you want to edit the map to use a second time: Make sure you move the square behind as well as the picture.)
This is an exciting activity for children of all ages and also links to the instructions part of the Literacy framework. Fill up some jugs with dilute orange, blackcurrant, lime, and water, as substitutes for the disgusting ingredients.
Can be done as a worksheet; but I personally cut up the sheets; place them in differentiated boxes at the front of the class; and get the children to write their answers in their books. Once a child has done one problem; they can go back to their box. Aligned with Common Core State Standards: 4.OA.1, Operations and Algebraic Thinking.
There are about 17 (practical and fun) lesson activities, tasks or worksheets to cover the following 2014 objectives: <br />
Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn.<br />
Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle. <br />
This is one of the children's favourite activities to help understand angles. Ideas for children of all abilities to have fun learning about angles.<br />

A self-contained game to be played in pairs.<br />
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.<br />
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).<br />
You will find a PDF version and editable Word version available for download; both are exactly the same, so download whichever is more convenient for you.
I have created this for a year 5 top set maths group. It is differentiated 3 ways, yellow being the less able, green able and pink more able.<br />
This links in very heavily with shape as I am teaching this following 3 weeks on shape, space and measure, so it will continue to embed their knowledge of quadrilaterals, types of triangles, angles and parallel and perpendicular lines.<br />
Hope this is useful! Have included photos of what it should look like once points have been plotted, hopefully I haven't made any silly mistakes! :-)
