Radial Symmetry

Radial Symmetry

The fifth graders learned about radial symmetry while doing this project.  We split the circle into 8 triangles which made it easier for the kids to create a detailed symmetrical design.  We discussed how symmetry involves not only shape but also color.  We also discussed the importance of contrast when they began coloring.  The students had such detailed designs, but without contrast all the detail disappears!
