# Rotational Symmetry- Collaborative Colouring

Description

Engage students in collaborative learning with a rotational symmetry colouring activity. Each student contributes to a four-piece design, ensuring identical colouring within groups. When combined, their creations form a vibrant and symmetrical artwork, fostering a fun and artistic approach to understanding rotational symmetry in a team setting.

Suitable for
• Relief Teachers
