“Symmetry Monsters”

The Preppers have been learning about simple fractions this week. We are focusing on 2 halves= 1 whole object. We are incorporating symmetry into our lesson in the most fun way! We chose a shape, then figured out how we could fold that shape in half to create two symmetrical sides. Next, we applied paint to one half of our shape, and folded it together. We discussed what the shape would look like when we opened it…would the two sides look different or the same? To wrap up our lesson, we decorated our shapes as silly “Symmetry Monsters.” Be sure to check them out outside of our classroom!
