Help! I am on Week 2 of my second placement (PGCE Primary Part-time), and have to plan a weeks work on Symmetry for a mixed ability Year 5/6 class. So far, I have planned to look at Lines of Symmetry, regular 2d shapes ( and their lines relating to no of sides etc) and Symmetry in Nature for the first lesson. I then thought the rest of the week we would look at reflective ymmetry and co-ordinates, rotational symmetry and translation. The problem is thinking of a creative, inteersting way of teaching it! I could plan the lessons and set them work with the textbooks, but how boring would that be? Are there any Maths geniuses out there with some interesting ideas on how to make symmetry interesting? Any ideas would be welcome as I am really struggling and in need of help. (Maths is NOT my strongest subject...can you tell?!) Thanks in advance!
