Springtime (which--I know--was way long ago, haha) is such an fun time for classroom art projects! On one afternoon of our many, many state testing days (yes, 4 days constitutes as many, many) student teacher #3 and I decided that even though we were way behind in math and the next test was coming up soon and EVERY LITTLE SECOND COUNTS, the kids still needed to have fun after taking a test all day. Sooo we decided to do a quick little art activity in preparation for our symmetry and transformations unit using these materials:

They turned out SO neat and the kids had a blast with it! We also had some great discussions about symmetry. Come on over to my blog to read more about this activity and part two of our symmetrical FUN!
