# Summary

In this lesson, students will research ways where transformations are used in their everyday life. Students will create a Photo Book using Adobe Express to present what they've found. The time frame for this lesson is between 50 - 60 minutes. It can be done virtually but works best face-to-face.

# Background for Teachers

To teach this lesson, you will need an understanding of transformations such as reflections, rotations, and translations. You will need to teach your students the difference between them and give examples of everyday use. This lesson is best taught as an extension of student thinking. You also need to have an understanding of Adobe Express Photo Book which is what your students will use to create their presentations. Khan Academy (Linked here: Khan Academy Transformations) can be a helpful resource for a review on transformations.

# Step 1 - Goals and Outcomes

Learning Intentions:

Students will be ale to extend their thinking by recognizing where transformations are used in their everyday life and being able to give an example.

Success Criteria:

Students will show success by creating a Photo Book presentation using Adobe Express with an example of a reflection, rotation, and translation in their everyday life.

# Step 2 - Planning Instruction

**Student Background Knowledge**

Prior to this lesson, students need to have an understanding of transformations. Mainly reflections, rotations, and translations.

**Strategies for Diverse Learners**

Some strategies for Diverse Learners are to make sure their Chromebook is in their native language so they can navigate Adobe Express effectively. Allow students to create their Photo Book in whatever language is comfortable for them. If using a Chromebook is too difficult for Diverse Learners, have students draw their examples on a poster board.

# Step 3 - Instruction

Warm Up: (10 Minutes)

The teacher will activate prior knowledge with students. The teacher will go over what a transformation is giving definitons and examples. What is a reflection? What is a rotation? What is a translation? How are they similar? How are they different? Students should be engaged in a classroom discussion. Students may also want to take notes as a reminder of the what each transformation is.

Lesson: (40 Minutes)

The teacher will instruct students that they will be using Adobe Express Photo Book to create a Photo Book with three examples of transformation in every day life. Students needs to incorporate one reflection example, one rotation example, and one translation example. The teacher will show her example to help students get started. Once the directions have been given, the students are to work independently using Adobe Express to create their Photo Book. The teacher does need to express that if students use any media from the internet, they need to cite their sources. If students use their own original photos, they do not need to cite it. This will help ensure the students are good digital citizens.

Wrap Up: (10 Minutes)

The teacher will instruct students that they will be presenting their Photo Books in class the next class day. Their assessment will come from their presentation. The teacher will hand out the presentation rubric so that students can practice their presentation at home. The teacher should faciliatate a discussion about what being a good digital citizen means while the class is viewing their presentation. Students should be respectful, polite, and encouraging when each classmate presents their final project.

# Step 4 - Assessments

Summative Assessment:

Using the attached Transformation In Everyday Life Presentation Rubric, students will one by one present their Adobe Express Photo Books and explain what examples of transformations they have found in their everyday life. In order for a student to be considered proficient, they must score at least 3 out of 4 on the provided rubric.

Formative Assessment:

During the time period where students are independently working, the teacher is walking around assessing student's understanding informally. If the teacher notices a mistake by a student, take the opportunity to correct the misconception.
