Learn how to use the resource MathIsFun to introduce rotational symmetry make the concept of mirror symmetry (symmetry in general) interactive. Then provide students an opportunity to bring their learning to life by creating on Tinkercad … providing a 3D view which can be sent to a 3-D printer if available. Throughout the process, students need to figure out the angle between each of their rotational symmetry chunks, which teaches them about fractions, place value system, etc
