Here's a SMARTBoard file for sorting objects using the property of symmetry.

#### Abstract Shapes, Categories Students, Symmetry Notebook, 16 Shapes, Common Core, Students Sort

#### This zip file contains a Smartboard activity where students sort abstract shapes into symmetrical and non-symmetrical categories. Students can get additional practice with 16 shapes to sort. Common Core Correlation: Grade 4 Geometry: 4.G.3. Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts.

#### Mirror Imaging Symmetry: The students will learn and apply the basic fundamentals of radial symmetry as they create an original mandala with white paper and colored pencils. They will incorporate math concepts such as fractional parts, measurement, and symmetry as they complete their projects.

#### Mirror Imaging Symmetry is a lesson that teaches students symmetry. Students use compasses, rulers, construction paper and scissors to create their images.

#### 4th Grade Art with Mrs. Brown. Circle Patterns to teach Rotational Symmetry in math. Use a compass and markers.

#### Circle Patterns ~ Rotational Symmetry 4th grade students learn the term "rotational symmetry" in their math class, so for a cross curriculum connection we do a series of projects involving rotational symmetry. In this project students used a compass to draw perfect concentric circles in which they drew small pictures or patterns that rotated around the circle. They colored in their drawings with markers and did their best to be consistent with their coloring.
