Who doesn’t love SpongeBob???? When I walked by the second grade classrooms and saw this bulletin board….I LOVED SpongeBob!
The second graders did such a good job by drawing the “mirror image” or symmetrical half of SpongeBob! I asked the nice teacher (thank you, Krista!) if I could use the template for my big third graders.
And of course, my third graders had a blast with it!
We actually turned it into a symmetrical drawing and coloring contest. The kids kept their SpongeBob private as they were working and posted their final drawing on the bulletin board when they finished.
One at a time the students came up to vote for what SpongeBob was the best representation of mirror symmetry.
I then asked two of my students to tally the votes. They made a graph and announced the results.
You are looking at the runner up:
And the winner!
If you want SpongeBob to visit your little ones during a math lesson on symmetry, click below to download the file for free HERE. Enjoy!
Warning: You will hear a lot of “SpongeBob SquarePants” chanting and singing when you first show your students what they will be doing as an inspiration for symmetry!
We are posting some more fun, interactive symmetry lessons coming up soon. Keep checking back!
Have a great night!
