## Lesson 8 - Exploring Symmetry

To encourage students to have fun on the Web while learning about Exploring Symmetry, here are some games and interactive activities they can do on their own or in pairs.

### Goals

Create symmetrical figures using concrete materials and drawings.

Represent halves as part of a whole using concrete materials.

### Instructions for Use

Symmetry lets students use symmetry to represent halves.

To use Symmetry, click on the white button and move through to observe the symmetrical shapes.

Symmetry in the Alphabet lets students use symmetry to represent halves as part of a whole using concrete materials.

To use Symmetry in the Alphabet, draw lines to show the symmetry in each letter of the alphabet. Write "yes" or "no" below each letter if rotational symmetry exists.

Symmetry Challenge Game prompts students to identify symmetry in an image.

To use Symmetry Challenge Game, colour the image to show symmetry in the drawing.
