Students can easily make “Symme-Trees” with these 6 symmetrical tree templates. Cut trees out of construction paper to teach halves, wholes, and line symmetry, as well as for bulletin boards, seasonal decorations, and student writing projects. Make a tree foldable with the title on the outside and the writing inside. Depending on the colors used, the trees will be suitable for the fall, winter, spring, or summer seasons. Make trees in autumn colors, add drifts of snow, or glue on spring flowers. You may end up with an entire forest!
Aligned with the Common Core Math Standard for 4th Grade Geometry 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. Also useful for 3.G.2, 2.G.3, and 1.G.3 [Halves, Wholes, Halves vs. Wholes, Unit fraction 1/2]
