Teacher Resources for Inversions

Feel free to print and distribute these in your classroom.

Here are classroom activities based on Inversions, appropriate for 3rd through 12th grade, for teaching symmetry, art, geometry, language arts, and creative thinking.. Drop me an email telling me what you did in your class and how it went, and I'll add it to the teacher comments at the end of each activity.
