How Do Your Air Jordans Move?

Please, place your shoes on the shoe rack. Pupils create a personal design for a pair of Air Jordans. Working in pairs, learners record their predictions on how to move their shoes to the shoe rack and record each step along the way as they test those predictions. To finish, groups share the differences and similarities of their predictions and the actual transformations required to move the shoes.
