Reflections

My fourth grade friend, Paul, and I had a great conversation yesterday. We talked about how a line of symmetry and a line of reflection are similar and different. Again, these concepts became very clear with the Smartboard technology.

In the video below Paul explains how he uses the camera capture tool to take a picture of a pre-image. That image is then flipped, resized and made transparent. (All of this can be done by selecting an object and going to the drop down menu.)

This method allows Paul get feedback on his work. He was able to check to see if he drew the reflection correctly.

I love how students can check their work.
