1) Get Kids Moving!
Students learn best by doing! Play a few quick games of Simon Says. BUT… ask students to complete geometric transformations with their bodies! Some examples to get you started include:
- Simon says translate your body two steps to the left.
- Simon says rotate your body 90 degrees
Alternatively, you can ask students to complete geometric transformations with small items on their desks. This option works best if students have also drawn a + shape on their desks, using a whiteboard marker. That way they can complete reflections!
2) Geometric Transformations Digital Escape Room
I feel strongly that digital escape rooms are the best review activity ever! That’s because they require very little prep, no marking and students enjoy them so much.
I love to give the team who finishes first a small candy as a prize.

3) Incorporate Music!
Click HERE to check out the NumberRock Geometric Transformations song on Youtube! Kiddos LOVE it!
4) Design a Snack Shack – Review of Geometric Transformations
This Math project reviews a ton of different geometry skills! Where do translations, reflections and rotations come in? Students design their own logos by completing flips, slides and turns.
