Symmetry input idea for 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by mrsh84, May 8, 2011.

  1. A lovely idea, thankyou. I will use that in the last week of term when we make food for our ugly bug ball. Was trying to think of other things apart from beetlejuice, slug slime jelly and squashed fly cakes!

    Have a look at this, ten rows down www.alljoinin.net/All_Join_In/Maths.html
    Search "Butterfly Matching (Symmetry)" on resources for photos of butterflies to match wings
  3. When we do symmetry we have a brilliant book where the children put a mirror on on the image to change it and make it symmetrical. I think it comes from Beam. You could do this anyway on any image you have it really makes the children laugh to see a cat with two heads or whatever.
  4. Also I know it's not strictly symmetry but you can tape 2 mirrors together stand them up like a card and put objects in front of the fold. They can change how many objects they can see by moving the mirrors.
