Product Description
This is a helpful scaffolded worksheet when students are learning about rotational symmetry.
Cut out shapes (or use tangrams or manipulatives) that fit inside the individual grids. The first box will contain the original shape - have students place the shape down and then trace it.
Move the shape to the next 3 boxes, each time turning it 1/4 of a turn, or 90 degrees.
On the bottom line under each grid, have students write "yes" or "no", or a "+" or "-", or whatever coding system you prefer, to indicate which rotated shapes had rotational symmetry (looked exactly the same as the first shape), and which ones did not.

This could easily be a math center for 4th grade. Students can also practice with letters and numbers.

These are GREAT for LAMINATING because then students can wipe off mistakes, and use the same sheet over and over again for different shapes.
