Geometry:
8.8 The student will apply transformations (rotate or turn, reflect or flip, translate or slide, and dilate or scale) to geometric figures represented on graph paper. The student will identify applications of transformations, such as tiling, fabric design, art, and scaling.

Lesson  (...)
Lesson: Introduces students to concepts of transformations.

Activity  (...)
Activity: Build your own polygon and transform it in the Cartesian coordinate system. Experiment with reflections across any line, revolving around any line (which yields a 3-D image), rotations about any point, and translations in any direction.

Activity: Create your own fractals by drawing a "line deformation rule" and stepping through the generation of a geometric fractal. Parameters: Grid type, number of bending points on the line.

Activity: Explore the world of translations, reflections, and rotations in the Cartesian coordinate system by transforming squares, triangles and parallelograms. Parameters: Shape, x or y translation, x or y reflection, angle of rotation.
