Nonrepresentational Symmetry


I wasn’t able to get many photos of this project, but students did an awesome job of using symmetrical shapes to create a nonrepresentational collage.  It just so happened that these fourth graders had learned about symmetry the day before in their math unit, so it was a perfect project to help reinforce the math lesson.  Students began by creating various symmetrical shapes by cutting folded paper.  I shared how the inside of the shape can also be cut out, which adds a bit more interest to the pieces. Students then glued their shapes together, making sure to align the lines of symmetry.
