Lesson 6 All Kinds of Attributes
Let’s use what we know about attributes of figures to create drawings.
Warm-up How Many Do You See: Dot after Dot
How many do you see? How do you see them?
Activity 1 You’re Gonna Draw It: It’s Symmetric
Here is a pair of parallel segments that have the same length.
Add one or more segments to create a figure with only 1 line of symmetry.
Here are two more pairs of parallel segments. Add more segments to make:
a figure with 2 lines of symmetry
a figure with no lines of symmetry
If you have time… Here are some other pairs of parallel lines. Add more segments to create a figure with 1 line of symmetry.
Activity 2 Hidden Shapes
Here is a field of dots.
Can you connect the dots to create each of the following shapes? If so, draw the shapes. If not, be prepared to explain your reasoning.
A triangle with only one line of symmetry
A quadrilateral with only one line of symmetry
A quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides
A quadrilateral with one pair of perpendicular sides
A six-sided shape with only one line of symmetry
