Symmetry

In class we are working symmetry. In grade 4, we must be able to find a line of symmetry, identify which shapes are symmetrical, and create the other half of a symmetrical shape.

Here are some great symmetry activities:

The following link is to a video/activity that we did in class that covers all of these topics and gives a chance for some fun practice. Please try it out at home! Also, look for symmetry in the world around you – in nature, in your community, maybe even in the mirror!
