We have also been learning about design. Specifically, symmetrical and A-symmetrical design. We worked on matching our magnet "twins" on the white board, and practiced our "Symmetrical Saying"..."What you do to one side...you DO to the other". Be sure to ask your children this question, but have them finish the phrase. To help reinforce the idea, we also created symmetrical mosaics using paper squares, some with animal prints. The entire project had to consist of 60 squares. 10 large on one side, with ten "twins" on the other and 20 small squares on one side, with 20 "twins" on the other.
Here are some finished designs :
