This week my 3rd graders continued to work on the learning objective: I can identify and create radial symmetry. We began a crayon watercolor resist by tracing three different sized circles in the center of a square paper. Then we used lines and shapes in each circle and the outside of the large circle to create patterns in radial symmetry. My students then traced their designs heavily with crayon and then used watercolor to paint each circle and the background in a different color. They turned out great! Thanks to my teaching partner Jayme Durrwachter for this lesson! You rock and thanks for always sharing ideas with me.
Check out my YouTube I've been teaching elementary Art for 18 years the last eight at Becky-David in the Francis Howell School District. Teaching Art is a great job and I absolutely love it! My job is made easier by all the wonderful Art teachers out there who share their ideas and "secrets" with me personally and through the internet. Thank you!
