Symmetry Ideas

Here is a fun way for young ones to explore symmetry using 2D shapes and desks lined up side to side or head to head - makes for a great line of symmetry! In groups of 4, I gave each pair the same 2D shapes. Each pair then designed what they wanted along one side of the desk. The other pair had to create the same pattern on the other side of the line of symmetry. Check out these symmetrical formations.

  1. What a great idea! Your kids did a great job... It's a tricky concept! Thanks for sharing it :)

  2. It is tricky and as they were working on it I realized the line between the 2 desks would be the perfect visual for the line of symmetry.
