This site gives clear examples of the various transformations— rotation, reflection, translation, and dilation (or resizing as the website refers to it). It also gives shows you whether the object is similar or congruent and why after it is transformed.

This site is an interactive site that gives students an understanding of what transformations are, what they do, and what happens to shapes after they have been transformed.

This site uses virtual manipulatives to transform shapes. It gives students the opportunity to interact with the various transformations and see the resulting images.

This is a site that has videos, activities, and quizzes. Students view a cartoon that describes transformations with real-world objects and people. It is fun to watch how the boy and his robot friend will teach kids about a concept. This would also be great for an at-home learning activity.
