Elementary Symmetry Collage

Here is a photo of the symmetry-based collage that the art classes (1st, 3rd, and 5th) did last Friday before Spring Break. They did a fabulous job discussing symmetry in different fields of study, such as math, science, nature and art. Some savvy third graders even mentioned congruent shapes and how they show symmetry. I have to applaud these students, because we had to cram our whole lesson and creative process into a mere twenty minutes of class time. It is AMAZING what can be accomplished when we work together.
