Semester 2 Topic 5 Level E

Task Name : Battleships Task Level : E (Grade 4)
Semester : 2 Topic : Transformations VC Strand : Location and Transformation
Web Address :
Equipment Needed : Battleships template (sheet)
Victorian Curriculum outcome : Create symmetrical patterns, pictures and shapes with and without digital technologies
Task description : Students design as many battleships as they possibly can that are symmetrical from a 9×9 grid. Ships can have 3, 4, 5 or 6 shaded squares within the grid. Students draw the line of symmetry for each 9×9 grid.
Assessment options : Template sheet filled out or digital equivalent
Teacher notes : This task is needed for levels F, G and H within this topic. Emphasise to students that the entire 9×9 grid must be symmetrical, not just the shape drawn – this changes the lines of symmetry available within each battleship. Rotations/reflections/translations of the same shape within the 9×9 grid are fine – these concepts will be addressed in later levels.
