    I taught a symmetry lesson last year to my first graders. I did the lesson for an observation and it went great. I used the dye-cut machine to cut out different shapes (some symmetrical and some not) I cut enough for each child to have about 8 shapes. I put them in ziplock baggies so that I wouldn't have to waste time passing the shapes out. (good bonus for an observation-don't want to waste time). Then we talked about the characteristics of an object being symmetrical. I had the student fold the objects in half. Then I called students up to place the symmetrical objects on our "symme-tree" The kids thought this was great. We then displayed the tree in the hall.
