Geometry Unit and Symmetry Activity

I really wish that I would have taken more pictures throughout our geometry unit. There are so many creative ideas out there to help solidify these concepts for kids.

A few of the activities we did included:
  • building various 2D and 3D shapes using marshmallows and toothpicks
  • modeling various types of lines using pretzels (for the lines), M&Ms (for points and to create line segments), and candy corn (to show how the lines go on endlessly)
  • creating foldables to remember different types of angles using the idea from Fabulous Fourth Grade!  
  • we also talked about transformations, using gross motor actions, and creating an interactive foldable.
  • and my students' favorite activity:  the symmetry activity!
This center was pretty simple. Having 4th and 5th graders, it took just a few minutes of reviewing for the students to remember what symmetry is and for them to get the hang of creating a symmetric pattern. Students used their rulers to create the line of symmetry. 




We also added to a new interactive bulletin board, I will have to post pictures of that soon!

Hope your having a wonderful fall,

Mrs. Whitehair

  2. There are basically two kinds of cleaning services which you can hire. Depending on what you want, you can decide on whichever is best for you. شركة تنظيف خزانات بالرياض There is no better choice between the two, so weigh out the pros and cons and see whichever will be your choice. شركة تنظيف منازل بالرياض As long as you make the right decision, شركة تنظيف واجهات حجر بالرياض you will surely benefit from the cleaning company that you have employed.
