Math Art – Rotational Symmetry – Mandala Patterns

(1)
A fun activity for your students when studying geometry or cultural celebrations such as Diwali (The Festival of Lights). Students use the grid lines and lines of symmetry to help them draw the pattern in the other sections of the circle. The lines are light grey and they will become less visible after colouring. Included: ♦ 3 different patterns ♦ Blank template (students can make up their own pattern) For each of the 3 patterns: ♦ student template with grid lines. ♦ completed student template (great as a reference during the lesson). ♦ the pattern without the grid lines (could be used as a simple colouring activity if desired). An example of what is included for each of the 3 patterns is included in the images. Provided in 2 different paper sizes: ♦ A4 size paper ♦ Letter size paper Make ... colour ... cut ... display The blank template includes: grid lines, lines of symmetry, outer circle. © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

Rotational Symmetry – Art activity – Maths (Geometry)

(1)
Rotational Symmetry Art Activity. This fun activity produces fantastic designs that your students will be super proud of. Each template has rotational symmetry of order 6 and is on isometric dot paper. Your students simply add more lines (ensuring each line is done 6 times to keep it symmetrical), using the dots to maintain accuracy. When your students are happy with their final design they can colour it in using symmetrical colouring. Afterwards, your students may wish to cut their design out and use it in another piece of artwork. For example, adding a stem and leaves to turn it into a flower. Plain isometric dot paper has also been provided as a basis for your students to create their own rotational symmetry design from scratch. Provided as two separate files – A4 paper size and Letter paper size. What you get: • 30 templates on isometric dot paper • Poster explaining rotational symmetry • Isometric dot paper (plain) • Teacher notes © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

Anzac Day -'Battleshots' game
swelch_resourcesswelch_resources

Anzac Day -'Battleshots' game

(1)
A super-fun game that your students will love! Particularly suitable for New Zealand and Australian classrooms that are looking for learning activities based around Anzac Day. You’re in a trench above Anzac Cove. You receive a coded message from your Commander. Decipher the code and then prepare for battle against a classmate … The game is based on the popular game of ‘Battleships’ but this game has an Anzac theme. Players give co-ordinates to destroy enemy targets in the area across from ‘No Man’s Land’. Vocabulary used in this game will prompt further research to develop a deeper understanding of the time soldiers spent in Gallipoli (eg, bivvy, jam tin bomb, stores, field gun, trench, etc). This resource contains 3 different levels of the code breaking task and the game templates. It will suit a range of abilities, allowing you to differentiate your student’s learning. I believe it suits students from approximately Year 4 upwards (age 8/9 yrs+). Included: ♦ Pre-game codebreaking task – decipher the message that is written in Morse Code (3 different levels). Optional task (it doesn't affect the game). ♦ Game instructions ♦ Game templates (3 different levels) ♦ Post-game activity – write a Morse code message back to your Commander informing him of the outcome of the battle. Math Learning Objective: Geometry (position and orientation): Communicate and interpret location using grid references. ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

Multiplication Game - 4 in a row (alien theme)

(0)
A fun multiplication game that reinforces knowledge of the 1x1 to 9x9 facts. Included: ♦ 4 game boards (numbers are arranged differently on each board) ♦ Instructions ♦ Multiplication grid (to support lower ability students) Provided in colour and black/white. How to Play: Player A starts by placing a marker under (or on) two of the alien numbers at the bottom of the game board. Player A multiplies these two numbers together and covers that answer on the board with one of their counters. Player B moves one of the markers to a new number. Player B multiplies these two numbers together and covers that answer on the board with one of their counters. Play continues in this way, with players taking alternate turns and moving only one of the markers each time. If a player moves a marker to make a multiplication question where the answer is already covered, they lose their turn. The winner is the player who makes a row of 4 with their counters. The row may be horizontal, diagonal or vertical. Number of players: 2 Equipment: counters and markers (The markers are used to show which two 'alien' numbers are being multiplied together. You could use counters, paper clips, little sticks, etc.) ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources
