Plotting coordinates using up to four quadrants!

Plotting coordinates using up to four quadrants!

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. 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. 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! :-)

Scale Drawing Board Game

Scale Drawing Board Game

An engaging and differentiated game to consolidate understanding of scale. I made this game when I couldn’t find much out there to consolidate scale work in a fun way in upper Primary classrooms. It’s also an enjoyable way of practising times tables (if using the standard version) or decimal multiplication (if using the Challenge version). The children act as engineers, working their way around the board using scale drawings (24 cards included) and throwing a counter onto a target to discover which scale to apply each time. Teaching Notes and Pupil Instruction Card included.Differentiation: Alongside the standard version there’s a Challenge Version for older/more able learners that requires pupils to deal with decimal lengths (a second set of 24 cards included) and to convert between cm, m and km, using a separate scale target board.I recommend blowing the gameboards up to A3 for use with bigger groups although A4 would be fine. I suggest printing the cards on different coloured paper to help keep sets separate, especially if using both versions with different groups.The Scale Target boards are colourful so black and white versions are included should you prefer.

In each PPT there are 6 individual starters (12 in total) in which the same 5 questions are repeated but just different values.These have been proven to ensure 5 topics are revisited at the beginning of lessons which are generally 2-3 marks each on an exam.Pupils like the repetition of the same questions each lesson and seeing progress from maybe being able to do 1 to doing all 5 at the end of the 6 lessons.
