This learning activity should be completed at the end of a geometry unit or after a lesson on symmetry. The teacher will pose a real-world problem that requires the students to create a design for a stained glass window. Using virtual manipulatives, students will work collaboratively to design a symmetrical stained glass window that has at least one line of symmetry.
This activity was created as a result of the Arts COS Resource Development Summit.
Symmetry Artist is an interactive painting activity that allows students to draw on an axis of reflective symmetry or rotational symmetry. Students can customize line style and color. The symmetrical art is printer friendly.
In this interactive activity, students will be led through steps to identify lines of symmetry in different figures. There are teaching activities as well as practice activities available. A handout that reviews the steps taught during the activity can be printed. After utilizing this resource, the students can complete the short quiz to assess their understanding.
