Saddle up for a fun way to explore line symmetry…if you click on the low-res image above, it'll go to my web page where you can download the high-res PDF. The idea is that students color the boots identically as mirror images. So, if the heel is brown on one boot, the heel is brown on the other boot. Simple counting questions reinforce the symmetry concept that if one boot has 3 big stars, the other boot must have 3 big stars also.
This activity page is adapted from my upcoming spring 2012 picture book, Seeing Symmetry. Enjoy!
