Mini Math Quest #1 – Symmetry Seekers

Share Button


Ask a child to be a line of symmetry for an object or an arrangement. Children are natural symmetry seekers whether they are building with blocks, drawing with crayons, or mimicking your gestures. Help your child explore the concept of symmetry this week.

Go on a quick (just a couple of minutes) symmetry scavenger hunt around the house or outdoors. Make your own symmetrical art. Arrange toys symmetrically. Identify and clearly mark lines of symmetry. Keep your camera ready because symmetry is beautiful. Take a picture and send it to us. Don’t forget to include your child’s name (or first initial) and age.

Note: If you have privacy concerns, don’t let them stop you from participating in this Challenge. Your child’s face does not have to be in the picture. In fact, why not take a picture of your child’s shadow or a bird’s eye view (so just the top of the head is visible). The possibilities are endless!

    Hey there just wanted to give you a brief
    heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m
    not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different
    web browsers and both show the same results.
