Symmetry

This Symmetry lesson plan also includes:

Get learners' minds rotating and reflecting while looking for symmetry. Pupils investigate figures to determine the number of lines of symmetry and if the figure has rotational symmetry. Classmates work together in groups to find out the order of rotational symmetry of figures and whether they have point symmetry.
