Make a Game Out of Classifying Shapes

Ask your child to explain the difference between symmetrical and asymmetrical objects. Then, go on a scavenger hunt at home or in the park to find several examples of symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes. Take the activity a step further and ask her to identify the type of symmetry that's represented – reflective symmetry or rotational symmetry.
