Finding Lines of Symmetry

Students identify lines of symmetry and congruent figures. Students fold paper and cut symmetrical figures. Teachers can use these figures to decorate their holiday bulletin boards with shapes such as hearts, shamrocks, and jack-o-lanterns. Students can use mirrors to determine which shapes are and which shapes are not symmetrical.

As a first year teacher, Lesson Planet is a precious lifeline! I am able to gather ideas and build on the ideas of veteran teachers. Lesson Planet is a huge time saver, especially for a first year teacher who is trying very diligently not to become overwhelmed!
