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: http://www.adrianbruce.com/Symmetry/ http://www.beaconlearningcenter.com/WebLessons/AskHannah/beacon002.htm http://www.gieson.com/Library/projects/games/matter/ http://www.abcya.com/tangrams.htm http://www.topmarks.co.uk/symmetry/symmetry-matching
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!
