Stars are an excellent form to use to teach symmetry and fractions. This download includes 4,5,6,7 and 8 pointed stars and can be used to supplement your studies on Astronomy/Space and the Winter Holidays as a craft or puzzle.
Counting & Matching:
For the littlest learners the stars can be used as matching cards and to help with counting the points of stars without counting one point more than once.
Symmetry & Fractions:
Older students will be able to decide where the points of symmetry are (an opportunity to discuss "radial symmetry"). These puzzles can also be used to illustrate the addition and subtraction of fractions.
