Coordinate grid worksheets - plot points & shapes, move and reflect shapes

With this generator, you can make free worksheets where students plot points on the coordinate plane, tell the coordinates of points, plot shapes from points, reflect shapes in the x or y-axis, or move them up, down, left, or right (translations). This generator is useful for 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th grades — from the time when students learn about the coordinate grid, till they study integers and reflections and translations in the coordinate plane.

You can control the type of problmes, number of problems, coordinate plane (either first quadrant or all quadrants), grid image size, maximum for the coordinates (scaling on the grid), workspace, border around the problems, and additional instructions.

The worksheets come with an answer key; however, you need to click to the answer key page immediately after generating a worksheet, because the answer key also is generated 'on the fly', and won't exist later on, should you come looking for it later.

Note: If the coordinate grid image looks like that it is missing some gridlines, not to worry. If you zoom in or print the worksheet, you will see all the lines. This is caused by the fact that the coordinate grid images are higher resolution than what your browser can display. I made them that way so that the grid images would look good when printed (print really "crisp".)

Here are some quick links for ready worksheets. Refresh the worksheet page to get another of the same kind.

Coordinate grid worksheet generator

Choose at least one problem type below.

plot points
tell coordinates of points
plot shapes when coordinates of vertices are given
move a shape in one direction (up, down, right, or left)
move a shape in two directions (for example, 5 units up and 2 units to the left)
reflect shapes in the x or y-axis
      easy: shape will not overlap the reflected shape

Coordinate grid
only first quadrant
all four quadrants
Grid image size on page
150 pixels
200 pixels
250 pixels (you can fit two problems in a row)
300 pixels
350 pixels
400 pixels (you can fit two problems in a row in landscape)
600 pixels (you can fit one problem on the page)

Maximum for x and y coordinate
10 (gridlines are at every 1 unit)
20 (gridlines are at every 2 units)
50 (gridlines are at every 5 units)
100 (gridlines are at every 10 units)

Columns:   Rows: (These determine the number of problems)

Number of empty lines below the problem (workspace)
