# Translation of shapes

**Lesson Aims**The pupil will identify the properties of the translation transformation.

**Name of Model****#A car**

**The lesson structure****First****Stage**: A prepatory lesson on the topic of the reflective transformation, reflection and line symmetry,the line of symmetry in quadrilaterals, and rotational symmetry.**Second stage:**The measuring tool,a prepatory lesson on the topic of the reflective transformation, reflection and line symmetry, opposite and adjacent vertices,the diagonal as a line of symmetry in quadrilaterals,rotational symmetry and translation of shapes.

**Lesson content**Translation as one of three transformations-Reflection,Translation,Rotation as studied in elementary school. In this lesson pupils will fold the model of a car and investigate the properties of translation, congruency of shape, the same distance in each translation of the shape and the same direction for each translation of the shape.

**Prior knowledge**Identification of polygons and and reflective symmetry.

**Stages in the curriculum**

**Materials**Measuring tool, Origami sheets 15 cm x 15 cm.
