Help your student become a(n) Mental Mover

Activities require children to make a mental image of what a shape or other object will look like after a given geometric motion (slide, flip, or turn…or some combination) or to imagine what geometric motion (or combination) will be necessary to move a shape into a needed position before moving it.
