Symmetry and Concentric circles. Geometry- Mandalas
⭐Are you looking for a resource to teach rotational symmetry and design?⭐
✅Mandalas are calming to create, color and display around your room.
✅This resource will be a winner over the Festive Season, but don't let that stop you from using them all year around.
✅ I have used Mandalas and Geometry hand in hand with great success over the years.
✅Experiment with shapes and mirrors and explore how a kaleidoscope actually works. I have included some fantastic links in this resource that will show you how to create a Mandala, how to divide your shape into concentric circles using a compass.
✅The YouTube videos included will show your students how to create some exciting Mandalas of their own.
✅This resource is designed to link mathematics, art and the theme of celebrations together in one neat activity.
✅Discuss with your students the definition of symmetry and find examples of it in the classroom, every day life and in historical mosaics and art pieces.
✅Concentric circles and geometry can be discussed within this activity, and students encouraged to use a compass to draw circles. This YouTube video may also be useful as a lead up activity or another lesson based on concentric circles
✅You will receive a 70 page PDF which includes 53 pages of images and 2 sheets of colored shapes that you can print of and laminate for use with mirrors to explore symmetry. Exciting stuff!!!!
