4th Grade students incorporated math concepts to create these radial symmetry projects. Folding and fractions were reviewed as students first created a half circle then quarter circle and cut the circle to obtain four quarter circles to begin their project. A stencil was created from a chosen 3, 4 or 5 letter word. Concentration on negative space and it's placement helped to create a more interesting stencil. The stencil was then traced 4 times to create the repeating design element. Again, concentrating on negative and positive spaces, students used colored pencils to emphasize portions of their design that were repeating. Here are a few completed student projects.
