Geometry film: How can I use reflective symmetry to draw a bee?


Learn about the symmetry of bees and use reflective symmetry to create a detailed bee drawing

This short film guides you and your students through the process of using reflective symmetry and close observation to create a detailed bee drawing. It has been designed to be used alongside the accompanying Geometry lesson plan, which provides text instructions, diagrams, tips and additional resources to help you deliver this activity with confidence. Although it is linked to the Year 2 enquiry, Why are bees so brilliant?, it could equally be used with any age group that is learning about pollinators or interdependence and we have provided plenty of ideas for differentiation in the instruction pack to help you tailor the activity to your students.
