Symmetry Time!

So one of my most favorite things to teach in math is symmetry and lucky me – its that time of the year!  One of my favorite activities to do with symmetry is allow the students to really explore different shapes.  I use the di-cut machine that our school has and cut out a variety of different shapes and objects.  The kids get to choose 6 and then investigate by folding, twisting, and bending.  Then they sort them on their mat that they made and labeled themselves.  The kids love it, its easy to do, and they really understand the concept!  Check out these adorable photos from today!
