My grade five students finished their geometric art designs. This was a lesson we did during Ramadan to celebrate the beautiful and different geometric designs found in Islamic art.
Each student received a large octagon shape, ruler, pencil and eraser. They were to create lines linking corner points of the octagon to create a symmetrical design. This is a great time to discuss and review symmetry.
Next, they colored in their design symmetrically using up to four colors.
The final step was to cut out their finished designs, glue them onto a colored piece of construction paper and trim them to fit the octagon shape.
Don’t you just love how these turned out?
