Associated Engage NY module and lesson.
Students and teachers will enter the world and look at pixel art with lines of symmetry drawn on them and talk about what they see.
Also please note that in Minecraft the lines of symmetry will be drawn a little different if the length is even or odd. Odd lengths could be draw with a perpendicular single line and even lengths lines of symmetry will drawn with a double line.
Then they will be asked :
1) What is a line of symmetry?
2) Can a shape have more than 1 line of symmetry
After students have described they think unveil the Big Idea
Big Idea: Symmetry happens when opposite sides can be folded into the same shape
Once students have found the big idea they will enter the world with a partner and work on 3 kinds of challenges.
Challenge 1) Drawn the Lines of Symmetry.
Students will look at a pixel art and draw the all lines of symmetry with red stained glass, take a picture and put it in there portfolio as well as download the image by pushing the structure block button.
Challenge 2) Complete the Pixel Art.
Students will look at a half done pixel art piece and complete it by using the information they get from the lines of symmetry. Then they will take a picture and put it in there portfolio as well as download the image by pushing the structure block button.
Challenge 3) Design Your Own Pixel Art.
Students will design their own pixel art piece and then they will peer review their partners by finding the lines of symmetry. After that they will take a picture and put it in there portfolio as well as download the image by pushing the structure block button.
1) The student was able to define symmetry.
2) The student was able to identify lines of symmetry in pixel art.
3) The student was able to complete a pixel art creation by using lines of symmetry.
4) The student was able to create half a pixel art piece ending at the line of symmetry.
5) The student was able to finish a partners pixel art piece.
