Art, Symmetry and Monsters

We studied symmetry by creating monsters.

When I saw this project on the Arte a Scuola blog, I knew we had to give it a try. It combined creativity and math and could be completed with basic simple materials. (colored paper, glue, white paper, pencil and markers).

 First an 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of paper was folded in half and a line with lots of bumps and ridges was drawn from the top to the bottom beginning and ending on the fold.

 The resulting figure was cut from the white paper and glued to a sheet of construction paper.

 Next, looking at the figures, we each decided where our figures would be divided so that they contained head, body and leg sections.

Then markers were used to make them into monsters.
