              Planes of Symmetry in 3D Shapes

              Students learn how to identify the planes of symmetry in 3D shapes.  Learning progresses from sketching the planes of symmetry for a cube and cuboid to constructing scale drawings of prisms on isometric paper.The start of the lesson recaps the properties of 3D shapes for a composite solid.  The plenary challenges students to consider shapes with an infinite number of planes of symmetry.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to identify the planes of symmetry in a cube.
              • Most students should be able to identify the planes of symmetry in a solid shape using isometric paper.
              • Some students should be able to identify and sketch the planes of symmetry for any solid.
