Lines of Symmetry

We were exploring shapes and lines of symmetry.

First, we looked at a square. How many lines of symmetry can we find?


Next, we looked closely at an equilateral triangle. What do we notice about this shape?

The students explained that the angles are the same size and the sides of this shape are the same length. Finally, we looked at the circle. The students commented that the circle have ‘many’, ‘countless’ or ‘infinite’ lines of symmetry. 



We recorded this information, counting and labelling the different lines of symmetry. 

Next, we looked for lines of symmetry in our homes.

Then, we looked for lines of symmetry in nature.

Finally, we created symmetrical pictures with shapes on Polypad.
