After the last activity drawing the symmetrical animal, 4th graders learnt how symmetrical we are. In order to do this we create symmetrical self-portraits, an activity that uses precise measurement to get beautiful results
First of all, they have to take a picture about theirselves and cut it in half.
Students glued their half-heads onto a piece of 9 x 12 white construction paper.
Using the ruler, students pick a starting point and measure how far it is from the line of symmetry. Then they measure that exact same distance on the opposite side, marking the spot with a dot.
And these are the results!
