Translation (Mystery & Quick Fire Starter)

Mysteries are a thinking skills activity, they promote collaboration and independence from the teacher. They are perfect to use at the end of a topic, requiring pupils to use the skills in a problem solving and often real life problem.

This download includes a starter activity and main translation mystery activity.
The starter is aimed at introducing translations through 10 quick fire questions on describing translations. Pupils can answer on mini whiteboards; use discussion to introduce and model that the movement left/right should be given first, followed by the move up/down.
The main activity “Translation mystery” is differentiated to two levels in which pupils use the clues to plot and translate shapes; level 1 uses words e.g. “left right” where as the second level uses vectors.

All our resources come complete with instructions, solutions and ideas for extension and support.
