What fun we had this week working with the line of symmetry. Last month we introduced the line of symmetry when working with our bodies and skeletons. This past week we cut leaves along their line of symmetry, matched leaves along their line of symmetry and made our own symmetrical designs along a line of symmetry using natural items. Many children made their designs resemble a “Leaf Man” which was a story we read with the activity. We were able to connect the idea of linear and circular patterns to the line of symmetry thus extending our understanding of the terms linear and circular. We look forward to observing the children during free time this week as they explore the table with the line of symmetry papers and so many more natural items to “play” with as they make designs.
