Mira Mira On The Table

Our grade eleven student teacher , Miss Bartel, has been working with us on some geometry.  We learned the names of 2D and 3D shapes and solids and now we are working on symmetry.

She borrowed some Miras from Miss Porath so we could try more symmetry.  They let you see the reflection of whatever is on one side of the tool.  We can use it to draw the other side of an object so it is symmetrical.  

Learning about symmetry will help us with transformational geometry later on in school.  Today we used them for Art class.  We had to take a picture from a magazine of a face and cut it right down the line of symmetry.  Then we used the Mira to help us draw the missing side.   

It was tricky at first but with practice, determination, and a little help from Miss Bartel, we got it!

Symmetry is fun!  Tell us what you think about what we did!


  1. that looks like it would be a lot of fun! Good work!

  2. Looks great, Grade 2 & 3!

  3. Great job! Working with a mirror to draw is difficult.
