In 6th grade classes we have worked on the symmetry, by writing our name and by drawing it four times in a square shape. Also the colors are put in a symmetrical way, thus forming abstract compositions, balanced by symmetrical lines. For students, this was a fun exercise to learn how repeat a module in symmetrical way, and for me, another good opportunity to finally learn all the names of my new students!

I love this! I need further instructions. The students do one section then trace? Then, how do they transfer the images to the next section?
Hi Cheryl! They used tracing paper to trace the first image with a soft pencil. Then they turn down the tracing paper on the second section and they re-trace the drawing. In this way you “print” the graphite on the white drawing sheet. You obtain a faint “print” drawing (look at the third picture, the student is retracing the drawing into the fourth section with a green felt tip pen, following the faint trace left from the “printed” graphite ). Let me know if the instruction is clear, I do apologize for my english… 🙂
