Pattern Blocks with Mirrors

To make this symmetry science center activity, I taped two unbreakable mirrors together and stood them up on the shelf. Children place pattern blocks in front of the mirrors to make repeated symmetical designs.

    Okay, Karen, this one is nothing short of completely BRILLIANT! I love the challenge that this poses for the kids. Your site is totally helping me find My Happy in this last week before school starts. Thank you so much!

    Could you tell me where you found your unbreakable mirrors that you used with the pattern block activity please?

    Thanks for this idea. I needed a science investigation to tie in with Chinese New Year and putting tangrams in the science center with mirrors is just the thing!
