Learn to graph points on a coordinate plane with our Quadrant 1 Hop mat!
Bring movement-based graphing activities to your classroom with our Quadrant 1 Hop floor mat! This tool is ideal for introducing the coordinate plane and early graphing concepts. This quadrant 1 graph allows students to plot points on the coordinate plane while moving and learning through play.
Our Quadrant 1 Hop floor mat depicts the first quadrant of the coordinate plane at a large scale. This mat is available in three sizes, so you can choose the one that best suits your class’s needs. In any case, multiple students can use this blank coordinate grid together, promoting collaboration and interactive learning. Additionally, the eye-catching colors and easy-to-see format will keep any visual learner engaged.
Students learn best while they are moving. With the Quadrant 1 Hop mat, teachers can easily incorporate movement and physical activity into their graphing activities. Students’ learning comprehension and memory retention will be improved as a result of moving on the mat while plotting points.
Overall, elementary students struggle to sit still. So why not encourage movement while exploring the positive values of the coordinate plane? A wide variety of kinesthetic activities are possible with this floor mat. You can find plenty of fun graphing activities on our database!
The Quadrant 1 Hop mat is versatile for use in multiple math activities. Create bar graphs, picture graphs, line plots, and polygons on the mat using paper, rulers, or blocks. Teach new math concepts, including geometric shapes, composite shapes, perimeter, area, symmetrical lines, slope, distributive property, scaling, and shape transformations.
Above all, kids get so excited about graphing points on the coordinate plane with this mat! Trade the graph paper for this larger-than-life quadrant 1 graph. Learn about the coordinate plane through movement!

Sample Activity: Find the Ordered Pair
- Have a student stand on the intersection of the X and Y axes (0,0).
- Have another student call out a new coordinate (“5, 16!”).
- The student on the mat will jump to the new location.
- Then, have other students take turns calling out coordinates and jumping.
