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 flower:
Which of the following options shows a correct rotation of this flower, after it has been rotated clockwise or anti-clockwise?
a) b) c) d)
The correct answer is b!
It can't be a as this is too small, and d is too big.
Don't be fooled by option c which is a flipped version of the flower (a reflection) - did you spot that the leaf was on the other side?
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!
