Having Fun with Symmetry!

Today, we learned about symmetry in math. I gave each student a piece of paper. I squirted paint on one side of the paper. Then, they folded the paper and pushed down really hard. When they opened the paper, they got a surprise. Their painting had the same design on each side! They shared their paintings with the class. We loved seeing the different results. We also made paper hearts using folded paper.

Here are a few friends holding up their symmetrical paintings:
