Symmetry on PhotoPeach Lots of fun today as we get a handle on flipping and sliding shapes and patterns. The challenge was to make a pattern with dinosaurs and then get our maths buddy to flip (reflect) the pattern on the other side of the page. Many students find it easiest to work with materials and be able to manipulate equipment - makes the learning concrete for them. My students loved this activity and tried very hard to make their pattern too complex for their buddy! However, there was no fooling them! They then took photos with their buddy to demonstrate their learning. Check it out!
