Introducing Symmetry: MINNEMAST Coordinated Mathematics - Science Series, Unit 7.
Blair, Kay W.; Forseth, Sonia D.
This volume is the seventh in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by kindergarten teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of four groups of activities. The purposes and procedures for each activity are discussed. Examples of questions and discussion topics are given, and in several cases ditto masters, stories for reading aloud, and other instructional materials are included in the book. The sections of this unit concern: (1) rotational symmetry, (2) repeating patterns, (3) bilateral symmetry; and (4) symmetry in sound and movement. A bibliography of books related to symmetry is provided for the teacher. (SD)
