Symmetry & Shapes

We have been exploring different shapes in class this week, especially ones that have reflective symmetry, that is shapes that can be folded in half so both halves are the same. Look for objects and shapes around your home that have reflective symmetry. You could comment and make a list of the objects and/or draw a diagram showing how the shape could be folded. Appliances, furniture, cutlery, electrical and electronic items around the home could have reflective symmetry.

The two-dimensional mathematical shapes that we are learning about could also be looked for around the house and on your way home from school, for example, a stop sign or a trampoline frame could include mathematical shapes that you can describe. Write your findings in a comment below.
