# Reflective Symmetry

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through January 31st, 2021. Join today!

What if we grouped the letters of the alphabet by… their symmetry?

### Objective

Students will investigate symmetry in the alphabet, forming words with reflective symmetry, and eventually creating full sentences.

### Steps

1. Students explore the differences in symmetry of a square and a rectangle.
2. Then they note the symmetry of capital letters.
3. They try to remake a letter so that it has symmetry, but is still readable.
4. They search for the longest words made entirely of symmetric letters.
5. Finally, they create a sentence using only words made of symmetric letters.
