Students explore symmetry in the insect world, comparing and contrasting insects and their symmetrical bodies and wings. They draw symmetrical insects, identifying body parts and explore nature's examples of symmetry. Afterward, they...
Line up this lesson when introducing symmetry to your young mathematicians. Watch how two figures are introduced to different ways of folding and identifying whether or not they are actually symmetrical. Finish the lesson with a multiple...
Challenge your class to identify, label, and draw a wide range of symmetries with this worksheet. In addition, learners name symmetrical shapes and compare them to alphabet letters. This worksheet asks class members to work with lines of...
Young geometers distinguish between mirror symmetry and rotational symmetry and construct pattern block designs demonstrating both. They then work together to find examples of each kind of symmetry on campus (or at home). They photograph...
Fifth graders investigate the symmetry of pattern block shapes. Students, working in groups determine whether each shape has line symmetry, rotational symmetry or both kinds of symmetry. Students determine how many lines of symmetry the...
Working on symmetry in your class? If so, this worksheet might be for you. Learners observe different triangles and quadrilaterals, determine which are symmetrical, draw in the lines of symmetry, and color the symmetrical shapes. In...
Teach your class about symmetry lines with this resource. This worksheet defines symmetry and explains lines of symmetry and how they work. Learners examine a variety of examples before drawing lines of symmetry in 5 figures. The...
Fifth graders analyze how to divide space or shape into mirror sections to create lines of symmetry. In this lines of symmetry lesson, 5th graders discuss symmetry in dance, math, and living. Students participate in a dance warm-up and...
Students practice dance to divide the space or body shape into equal sections to create symmetry in dance. In this symmetry instructional activity, students practice symmetrical and asymmetrical movements in dance. Students participate...
Fourth graders use polygons to create animal figures with symmetry. In this polygons and symmetry lesson plan, 4th graders create a symmetrical animal collage by cutting and gluing geometric shapes and figures from math activities.
In this symmetry learning exercise, students identify lines of symmetry in given polygons. They discover the correlation between the number of sides and the number of lines of symmetry. Students determine the lines of symmetry in...
Build on your learners' previous knowledge of geometric shapes and symmetrical figures. Then set them out to take photos of geometric shapes on campus. They assess whether the photos contain symmetry or not.
Pupils identify symmetry in road signs. For this geometry lesson, students explore objects in the real world for symmetry. They perform translation, rotation and reflection.
In this symmetry worksheet, students identify the lines of symmetry in given polygons. They match the number of lines of symmetry to the correct figure. This one-page worksheet contains seven problems.
In this symmetry worksheet, 7th graders identify and complete 12 different lines of symmetry in polygons. First, they color all of the polygons that have a line of symmetry. Then, students circle all of the regular polygons and use the...
Second graders create symmetrical butterfly wings. In this symmetry lesson plan, 2nd graders observe butterfly wings and create their own. They make both sides symmetrical and mix primary colors to make secondary colors.
Students explore the concept of tessellations. In this tessellations lesson, students use an applet to construct tessellations. Students use regular polygons to construct tessellations. Students find patterns and symmetry in their...
Why is "ambulance" written backwards on emergency vehicles? Young geometers apply principles of symmetry to translate words written backwards. See if your school or district subscribes to Jobland, where you can view a clip that explains...
Mathematics Vision Project
No need to change anything about the resource. The first of eight modules in the MVP Geometry unit focuses on transformations in the coordinate plane. It connects translations, rotations, and reflections to congruence, symmetry, and...
