Reviewer Comments:

This activity combines creativity and the coordinate grid. Students will create a picture using ordered pairs and parallel and perpendicular lines. The instructions are easy to follow and very complete. Students expectations are clear and a rubric is provided for teacher and self evaluations. A few samples of completed project may have been helpful. Overall, a very well done activity that can easily be used in a classroom as is.
