POSSIBLE EXTENSIONS FOR SYMMETRY:

• Have students work in pairs. Divide a Geoboard in half with a rubber band. One student then makes a shape or pattern on one half of the Geoboard. The other student must then make a mirror image of the first shape or pattern on the second half of the Geoboard so the design is symmetrical. Students then switch roles and repeat the activity.

• Have students make symmetrical designs out of Centimeter Cubes. Students can then use crayons to draw their designs on a centimeter grid.
