## In the Garden

This unit explores Level 2 symmetry and transformation concepts. It involves the students making patterns that translate, reflect and rotate. The unit contains a variety of activities that explore these concepts through the context of a garden. It would be helpful to introduce the unit by reading a book to the students that had a garden setting. An aim is to make a classroom display about a garden. These activities are starting points. Be as creative as you can! A variety of art materials will be used for this unit.

Resource

## Fold and Cut

In this unit students explore line symmetry and the names and attributes of two-dimensional mathematical shapes. The context of this unit is students folding and cutting out shapes to make a series of mathematical shapes.

Resource

## Fold and Cut 2

This unit involves folding and cutting paper to see the number patterns that are produced and to see what geometric shapes can be made. This unit contains similar content to Fold and Cut.  You may want to take parts from both units when planning your own teaching.

Resource

## Tessellating Tiles

In this unit students explore tessellations using the context of bathroom tiles. Squares and dominoes are used in a variety of different colour combinations to help students develop design ideas. The unit finishes with students designing their own tile tessellation and making a model of their design.
