Flip, Slide, Turn! (again)
My second grade mathematicians have been working on some tricky geometric concepts: flip, slide, and turn. This is not an original idea, but I'm sharing it because it truly worked for my 2nd grade students. One of my team members did this activity, and I liked it so much I wanted to give it a try. I'm so glad that I did, because the kids enjoyed completing the activity. I had the students start by cutting out six hands. We then practiced each of the concepts a few times as a whole group before I set them loose to glue and label. Good luck!
