Mirror Symmetry

It’s a proven fact that kids love reflections and symmetry. So, that’s why mirrors always become a magnet for them. They love making symmetrical shapes with different colors. With this project, students can make amazing patterns just by using two mirrors and a bucket of wooden pattern blocks. For instance, when you make a simple triangle with wooden blocks and put them between two mirrors, you will see many new rotated triangles. Or instead, you can make half of a butterfly and use a mirror to complete your butterfly. Students to explore the ideas of symmetry, reflection, and rotation just let them use pattern blocks and mirrors. Ask them to change angles between mirrors or ask them to figure out how to increase the number of reflections of a pattern.
