Symmetry is everywhere, but it's often hard to notice. This lesson explores a few ways to identify it. By folding and making mirror images for different shapes, students will discover a new world of symmetrical figures.
Fourth graders will discover the building blocks of geometry in this unit: points, lines, line segments and rays. Students will explore the properties of different shapes, including symmetry, parallel and perpendicular lines, and 900 angles. Students will apply their understanding as they learn to sort shapes based on these properties.
Fourth grade geometry resources for volume, area, perimeter, and other geometry lessons that will help your fourth grader get ahead can be found here. Learning everything included in a fourth grader's geometry unit can be problematic, but these worksheets, activities, and exercises can make the whole experience a little easier.
