Rotational Symmetry
Activity
_____________________________________________
Go here: Pattern Blocks

Put three triangles on your page.
Leave the first triangle alone.
Rotate the second triangle one time.
Rotate the third triangle two times.
Do the three triangles look the same?


Can you do this with the other shapes?

How many times do you need to rotate each shape to get all the way around to where you started?
