Grade 3/4 Dinner Talk
Math and Awesomeness
We also talked about symmetry, the idea that if you cut or fold something in half each side will be exactly the same. We developed a theory that a shapes sides would determine how many lines of symmetry it has. A square and rectangle have four sides and four lines of symmetry. Hexagons have six sides and six lines of symmetry. All was going well with our theory until we got to the rhombus. A trapezoid has four sides but only one line of symmetry. We are going to talk about how we could change our theory tomorrow.
After that we had Dance in the gym. our performance is looking really good. Hope you can make it.
Just after recess we read a couple of books, see below, to see if we could figure out how they are the same. Maybe your student in Grade three can tell you (the fours were in french)
The very end of the day saw us in the gym practicing for the concert tonight. Please remember to wear holiday colours. We are performing because we didn't get a chance to perform at Christmas time.
See you there.
