Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Published on 2014 June 2nd

Explore a secret garden to find shapes with three or more lines of symmetry. Look for shapes that are hidden in objects, for example, a flower, tent and bird bath. Use the testing wand to fold the shapes into matching halves. Check your prediction. Find and test more hidden shapes. This learning object is one in a series of six objects.

Students distinguish between symmetrical and non-symmetrical 2D shapes.
Students test a shape for reflectional symmetry by folding it into a matching half.
