Today we learnt about symmetry.
Symmetry is where a shape or object is mirrored or the two parts are the same.
We used lots of different shapes and we cut the out and folded them in half (vertically and horizontally) to see if the two sides were the same.
Then we sorted the shapes into categories - vertically symmetrical, horizontally symmetrical, and asymmetrical. We had to agree or disagree with the other groups if we thought that shape was vertically symmetrical, horizontally symmetrical or it wasn't symmetrical at all.
Asymmetrical means when it isn't symmetrical, the two parts are not the same.
