    symmetry idea
    By Debbie

    Clip to ScrapBook
    When I teach symmetry to my second graders, one activity that I do and they always love is using small mirrors to see if letters and numbers are symmetrical or not. I have a sheet of paper typed up with the uppercase letters of the alphabet and numbers 0-9. They hold the small mirrors on their sides in the middle of each letter/number..if they look in the mirror and the reflection looks how the other half of the letter normally looks then it's symmetrical, if not then it's not symmetrical. They work with a partner on this and they love it! Hope this helps!
