Draw the Other Half

This Draw the Other Half worksheet also includes:

How can you make the two halves symetric? Scholars use the concept of symmetry to complete five images which are only half-drawn. The fun part about this exercise is that they aren't copying geometric shapes. There is a face, sun, kite, house, and Christmas tree here, which opens up opportunities to extend this by asking kids to draw half of an image of their choice, cut off at its line of symmetry. Next, they fill in pegboards to match a pre-filled side. Make sure scholars understand that creating a symmetrical image and coloring in the same pegs aren't the same thing.
