3rd grade Radial Design
Third Graders are working on Radial Balance. Balance is one of the Principles of Design, and radial balance is usually a circular design that has two or more lines of symmetry. The stained glass image above is from Notre Dame church, and actually has many lines of symmetry, not just the two lines my students are showing with the yarn. Students are working hard drawing different shapes and lines to create their radial designs. They are now adding color with markers, which can be tricky since the color must be balanced as well! Here are some students working on their beautiful designs.
