## What is flip slide and turn?

Flips, turns and slides are position changes you make to a shape–they describe motions and/or the result of a motion. In kindergarten and pre-K, children learn to describe relative position using words like: above, below and between. Transformations describe how a movement is made from one place to another.

**What transformation mean to slide?**

translation

A translation (or “slide”) is one type of transformation. In a translation, each point in a figure moves the same distance in the same direction.

**Is a rotation a slide turn or flip?**

When a transformation moves around, whether it is a Rotation (Turn), Reflection (Flip), or a Translation (Slide), it never changes its dimensions (or size). This is an educational video that shows students reflection (flip), translation (slide) and rotation (turn) in the form of a song and dance.

### What is a flip shape?

A flip is a motion in geometry in which an object is turned over a straight line to form a mirror image. Every point of an object and the corresponding point on the image are equidistant from the flip line. A flip is also called a reflection.

**What is the difference between flip and turn?**

As nouns the difference between turn and flip is that turn is a change of direction or orientation while flip is a maneuver which rotates an object end over end or flip can be a mixture of beer, spirit, etc, stirred and heated by a hot iron (a flip dog ).

**What is flipping of an object?**

When you flip an object, the object turns over, either vertically or horizontally, so that the object is now a mirror image.

## What can you learn from slides and flips?

Students will learn all about flips, slides, and turns, manipulate shapes, and pla Use this geometry worksheet on Slides, Flips, and Turns to assess student understanding of the movement of shapes within their environment. Answer key included. Detective-Theme clipart by www.mycutegraphics.com

**What are some classroom activities to complement slides and turns?**

These classroom activities are designed to complement the Slides, Turns, and Flips topic on BrainPOP Jr. Flip it! Practice making flipped shapes together. Provide partners with paint and construction paper. Have students fold the paper in half and paint a shape one side. Close the paper on the fold line and press down.

**How can I teach my child to flip and turn?**

Sing “This is the way we slide, flip and turn” using dolls and stuffed animals. Dolls have a front that is distinctly different from the back, so they make it easier for the children to understand the “flip” motion. Pick up leaves on an outdoor walk.

### How do students use shapes to demonstrate a slide?

Have students use a shape (such as the “L” shape from the game) to demonstrate a slide, flip, and a turn. Students will trace the shape in their journals and apply slides, flips, and turns to the shapes.
