Hi there, 2D shape detective!
Rotation is a term that describes the action of turning a shape.
The shape can turn either clockwise or anti-clockwise.
Clockwise is the same direction as the hands on a clock move.
Anti-clockwise is the opposite way.
Take a look at this picture of a boat:
Which of the following options shows a correct rotation of this boat?
a) b) c)
The correct answer is c!
It can’t be option a as this image has been flipped over (reflected) and it can’t be option b as the image is too big.
In this activity, you will need to be a 2D detective and find the rotated images.
Try not to get too dizzy with all this spinning!
It’s now your turn to find the rotations.
Here's a handy hint to help you reach superstar status:
Make sure the option you choose is an exact replica of the original. It must have the same, colour, shape, outline and size. Only the rotation changes!
Good luck rotating the shapes detective!
