4.G.3 - Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
Use the task worksheet to assess understanding of symmetry.
The first section of the sheet is for students to write “student friendly” I can statements. Briefly talk about the standard and then have the students write it in their own words.
Learning Targets (I can statements)
I can identify shapes with symmetry.
I can define symmetry.
I can draw a line of symmetry.
I usually use the worksheets in a small group setting, differentiating as you need for individual student learning. Throughout the lesson monitor for learning.
At the end of each task I ask the students to rate their learning. 0- I can’t do it at all, 1 - I can try with your help, 2- I’m starting to understand and I might need a little help, 3- I’ve got this, 4 - I can teach this or move on for enrichment.
