Subject: Re: Symmetry

Your question and Claudia's answer gave me another idea.

Using pattern block make a figure.  Using spaghetti move the spaghetti
horizontally, vertically or obliquely over the figure looking for bi-lateral
symmetry.

Make a mark on the spaghetti as an origin.  Using the marked piece of
spaghetti move it over the figure looking for a place where the figure lies
at equidistant from the marked point.  This is a difficult one to see so
perhaps it will not be a good use.
