Our Symmetry lesson plan enables students to define symmetry, recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure, identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry. Engage critical thinking and generalize understanding as students explore the ways the human body is symmetrical and the reasons why it does not have perfect symmetry. During this lesson, students are asked to complete a fun, interactive activity in which they cut out shapes and fold them to find lines of symmetry, recording the number of lines of symmetry they can find for each shape. Students are also asked to circle letters which are symmetrical, draw a symmetrical other half of pictures and more.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define symmetry, recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure, identify line-symmetric figures, and draw lines of symmetry.
