Notes and Guidance
Children learn to translate shapes on a grid. Children could focus on one vertex at a time when translating. Attention should be drawn to the fact that the shape itself does not change size nor orientation when translated.
What does translate mean?
Look what happens when I translate this shape. What has happened to the shape?
Have the dimensions of the shape changed?
Does it still face the same way?
Are there any other ways I can get the shape to this position?
