Math: Geometry: Transformations for Lower Elementary
These sites are about geometric transformations including sites to help students visualize shapes after they have been reflected, rotated, flipped, and translated. Includes lesson plans and printable card games as well as virtual interactive manipulative that lets students change the shapes online. There are also links to eThemes Resources on transforming shapes, visual spatial skills, and shapes.
