Teaching Another Math Concept Using the Yes/No Game

Today we used the YES/NO game (concept attainment) to teach another math concept. Look at the YES examples and the NO examples. The YES examples all have a quality that the NO examples lack. At the end there are a number of TESTERS where you decide whether they belong in the YES or NO group. Can you figure out what quality the shapes in the YES group all have in common? (see answer at the end of this post)

-The shapes in the YES group all have at least 1 line of symmetry. The shapes in the NO group do not have any lines of symmetry.
