Resource Intended to be played to House music for full effect! Children are to be taught basic movements with arms to reflect parallel lines (arms bent at 90 degrees with forearms parallel to each other) and perpendicular lines (one hand to elbow at 90 degrees).
Pick a flag and investigate some of the following:-
What shapes can you see in it? Can you describe them and their angles? Does the flag have any lines of reflective symmetry, if so how many lines? Can you find any pairs of parallel lines? If so mark them on your flag. Are there any lines perpendicular to one another?
Lesson Looking for parallel and perpendicular lines in the world around us and in 2D shapes. The activity involves drawing 2D shapes with certain pairs of lines (differentiated - 3 levels).
