Exploring Symmetry in Math and Nature




Identify and analyze examples of symmetry in mathematical shapes and natural objects.


  • Paper and pencil
  • Protractor and ruler
  • Natural objects (e.g., flowers, leaves)
  • Notebook for recording data


  1. Draw various geometric shapes and identify lines of symmetry.
  2. Measure and record the dimensions and angles to confirm symmetry.
  3. Collect natural objects and observe their symmetrical properties.
  4. Analyze the symmetry in both mathematical shapes and natural objects, noting similarities and differences.
  5. Present your findings in a report, discussing the importance and occurrence of symmetry in both math and nature.
