Step right on up to the Ticketing booth and discover the conformity! The uniformity! As you find each ride’s lines of symmetry in SYMMETRY LAND!” Find similar parts facing each other or around an axis on the various rides at our musical and mathematical amusement park!
Symmetry Land Song Lyrics:
We’re in line to ride the Ferris wheel,
a circular shape made out of steel.
Before we ride, we try to decide
where a circle’s lines of symmetry hide.
Lines through the center have symmetry.
So each circle has infinity!
Each line, upon further inspection,
creates a perfect mirror reflection!
CHORUS: Everywhere we look, we see
lines of symmetry!
Everywhere we look, we see
lines of symmetry!
At the pirate ship we wait our turn.
This ride can make our stomachs churn.
A line from the axle to the ground
is one line of symmetry to be found.
Identical parts, facing each other
have symmetry with one another.
Lines of symmetry evenly divide;
let’s find symmetry on every ride.
We see the roller coaster’s loopty loop
has a line of symmetry between the hoop.
A mirror reflection on each side
is where the lines of symmetry hide!
Then we see a mirror and realize
symmetry disguised right between our eyes.
A line divides each side of our face!
We see symmetry all over the place!
It’s time for lunch, and we’ve got a hunch
that symmetry’s in the food we’ll munch:
We look at a cracker; it’s a square;
we see four lines of symmetry there.
Chewed the four corners - they were gone -
leaving us with a cracker octagon.
We looked a bit closer then to see,
The regular octagon’s eight lines of symmetry.
If you are interested in getting ideas on how to plan a robust standards-aligned telling time lesson, we recommend checking out Instructure's recommendations for common core standards 4.G.3. These pages help break down standard language, lay out the grade-appropriate level of rigor for each concept, and offer a variety of suggestions for activities (lesson seeds) that help students achieve their learning targets.
