• ​Identify and describe the location of an object, using a grid map, and reflect two-dimensional shapes.

## Context

• One Game board per player (Appendix A)
• Teacher or Leader’s board can be created on an interactive white board

## Lesson

• Teacher calls out the coordinates on which square tiles should be placed (e.g. place a red tile on B3; place a blue tile on C1).
• Students follow the instruction to place the correct tile in the correct coordinate.​
• Repeat this process until a colourful design has been made on the grid.​
• At the end, reveal the teacher reveals their game board and allows students to revise their shapes to match the teacher game board.
• Change the roles and play the game again.
