Students in grades 4-6 created these cool colored snowflakes. We began by looking at snowflake designs and creating a similar design on a small triangle. These were then traced on the back and transferred onto a larger paper to create a "snowflake." This design was then colored with cool colors- various shades of blue, green and violet. A great winter project that teaches the math concept of radial symmetry along with balance and color theory!

We began by using a glue and water mixture and brushing it over squares of tissue paper to attach it to a white paper. During the next class, we drew an elephant shape on the back of that paper and cut it out to create the Elmer. All you need to add is an eye and an ear with black crayon or marker. We glued our elephants onto a torn paper background of palm trees.
