Symmetry is everywhere, but it's often hard to notice. This lesson explores a few ways to identify it. By folding and making mirror images for different shapes, students will discover a new world of symmetrical figures.
Fourth graders will discover the building blocks of geometry in this unit: points, lines, line segments and rays. Students will explore the properties of different shapes, including symmetry, parallel and perpendicular lines, and 900 angles. Students will apply their understanding as they learn to sort shapes based on these properties.
Familiarize your students with all aspects of trapezoids! From describing and drawing trapezoids to identification and real world examples, this worksheet will get your students thinking about the many attributes of this important 2-D shape.
