    Have students find lines of symmetry with the captial letters of the alphabet. Some fonts are better than others, so choose carefully. They can do a venn digram of letters with vertical vs. horizontal lines of symmetry. They can go on to find symmetrical words (vertical line of symmetry- MOM TOO HOT TO HOOT, WOW, TOOT) (horizontal line of symmetry - DEED, BEE, BOOB!)
    Look in palindromic word books. I made it a fun competition to see who could find the longest word with a horizontal line of symmetry - DECIDED, DECODED)
