Geometry: Part 4

Today we began investigating symmetry.  Students were given small pieces of paper and shown how to "make a line of symmetry" before cutting their own unique shapes out.  They decorated them symmetrical.

A few books I like to read aloud are:

Symmetry by Lynn Peppas
What is Symmetry in Nature? by Bobbie Kalman
Let's Fly a Kite by Stuart J Murphy
Seeing Symmetry by Loreen Leedy

Tomorrow, we'll be painting symmetrical butterflies...but only painting one half!
