MATH
Personal Symmetry

Submitted by: Stephanie Raymer
From: Van Nuys, CA
Date Submitted: March 3, 2003

This is just a fun way to tweak the traditional symmetry lesson. Instead of cutting out faces from a magazine, I took pictures of the students themselves. The next day, when the pictures were developed, I taught about symmetry, had the students cut their own pictures in half, and create the symmetrical side to their own face! The kids loved doing this activity because it was a personal connection to math!
