The kindies… just love their sponge like brains ready to absorb all the mathematical information that was given to them during this math/art mash-up unit.
They learned about the word symmetry, and some of them even learned the cognate word in Spanish, symmetria. They learned about the line of symmetry cutting something down the middle and that both side had to be the same in order for something to have symmetry. Then… we turned into ninjas! And we went around the room karate chopping things in half to see if they were symmetrical! We karate chopped doors, tables, chairs, posters, even our friends! Then we made art!
Yay Kindies! Hiiiiii-YA!
