In collaboration with grade 3 classroom teachers, Marina Gijzen and Kath Adams, we discussed the idea of integrating maths transformations with my movement composition unit. Both grade 3 classes had to create a short yoga sequence that included 4 poses that were repeated in a pattern to a short piece of music (Revue D'un Pantin by Cirque Du Soleil). The challenging thing wasn't so much remembering the poses as it was to include the following maths transformations in the routines (slides, reflections, and rotations). The students did a fantastic job and came up with some pretty creative sequences. Please see short video below to view their great work. As well, I have included an audio clip of Revue D'un Pantin by Cirque Du Soleil. Just click the play button to hear the song.
