A worksheet to give students practice at flips, slides and turns.

This worksheet steps through each of the transformations using blank tiles for the students to colour. Students reflect (flip), translate (slide) and rotate (turn) a block of four tiles, enabling them to easily see the transformations. When working on the turns, students show a sequence of three rotations – each a quarter turn.

The final task of the worksheet allows students to apply their knowledge of flips, slides and turns to create their own combinations of tiles. Students also invite a friend to examine their work to identify the transformations.
