In this lesson, students will play a symmetry collecting game and drag the given symmetrical objects to the pirate Actor. Next, students will follow a step-by-step tutorial in the DIY (do-it-yourself) module to create their own version of the game they just played. They will change the background, program draggable Actors, add sound effects, and make symmetrical Actors react. If students finish early, ask them to look at the bonus section in step 8/8 of the tutorial, which encourages them to add new Actors (both symmetrical and not symmetrical).
After completing the DIY module, students will be asked 5 quiz questions involving symmetry. By the end of the lesson, students will have experimented with coding concepts (e.g., events, loops, conditions, motion, math, events, messaging, input/output, sound playing, costume handling) while reinforcing differences between symmetrical and non-symmetrical objects.

Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!
So engaging
We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!

Great app!
This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!
Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
Great app
Wow! This app is really great. For the first time my kids actually enjoy learning math and reading. The games on Kids Academy are educational and really fun.
Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.
