#### Symmetry

For Students 3rd - 4th Standards
Where is the line of symmetry? Learners begin by drawing in a line to split three images evenly in half, using an example as reference. Encourage them to think about physically folding the picture to solidify this concept. Next, they do...

#### Symmetry

For Students 2nd - 4th Standards
Do these dotted lines indicate symmetry? Some of them do, and scholars determine which ones in 12 different images. Because some of these are tricky, it may be helpful to have large versions of these shapes printed and cut out. This way,...
