Year 2 – Palm Class investigate line symmetry of 2-D shapes.

Palm Class have been investigating line symmetry. First, we used the mirrors to explore which shapes had lines of symmetry.

After that, by drawing and cutting out our own 2-D shapes we were able to fold them to see where the lines of symmetry ran. We discovered that some 2-D shapes have more lines of symmetry than others.

How did you sort your shapes? Which 2-D shapes had the least lines of symmetry? Why do you think this is? Which shapes have more? Why could this be? How did you present your findings? What patterns did you notice?
