This Line of Symmetry Worksheet looks at the relationships between North and South Poles. It may be used to understand how and why the stars are at the North and South points in the sky, and how that relates to the shape of the Earth.
It is clear that the Sun and Moon move around the Earth. This is not only the result of our gravity, but also the result of their gravity pulling down on us from the sky. However, what happens if we were to look at it from a different perspective? Instead of looking at it from Earth’s surface, would we see the two sides of the Earth as one side?
What happens when we look at two normal objects that are the same size but are rotated so that they are looking at each other from opposite sides? Can you make out the difference? How can we see the North Pole and South Pole to be one object when looking at them from that perspective? If we could see the poles from that angle and were able to mark one on the ground for reference, what would it look like? How would that help us to understand the shape of the Earth?
Lines of Symmetry can be used to relate both North and South Poles to the Earth, and why we see them as one thing. It can also be used to help you understand the position of the earth relative to the stars at any time of the year. In the winter the Earth moves across the sky, and in the summer it moves across the sun. If you have a good knowledge of the phases of the moon you can see that the movement of the Earth and the moon are the same, as the earth moves across the moon’s path.
There are many different points on the Earth where Lines of Symmetry can be seen. The best places to look for them are at the Equator and the Pole. You should be able to see a straight line between the equator and the Pole in the Northern Hemisphere. You should also be able to see a straight line between the Equator and the Pole in the Southern Hemisphere.
Using Lines of Symmetry worksheets, you can trace these lines on the paper. This makes it easier to see how the two points on the Earth are connected to each other and gives you a clearer idea of what the shape of the Earth is like at different times of the year.
In addition to finding out what the Equator and the Pole are in relation to each other, you can also use Lines of Symmetry to find out what the location of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres are. Using Lines of Symmetry to locate these two points allows you to remember that there is one pole in the Northern Hemisphere and one pole in the Southern Hemisphere, and that both points are on the Earth’s surface.
The simplest way to use Lines of Symmetry is to write them down using the Equator and the Pole. This way you will be able to see the lines at different angles and can choose which angle you want to use when reading the lines of symmetry to remember which line is which.
