__Rotational Symmetry__is when a figure is rotated less than a full turn around its center point so that it would fit perfectly on the original shape.

**Many natural and man-made objects are symmetrical in 2 and 3 dimensions.**

__Snowflakes__and the__petals__of some flowers have rotational symmetry.

**Suggested Activities for Students**- Have students explore their
**homes**and**classrooms**to look for examples of rotational symmetry.
