4th grade students learned about Radial Design and Symmetry as well as ROY G BIV during this lesson. ROY G BIV is the order of the colors of the rainbow. The rainbow helps students understand how light mixes to create all the colors.
Students began the lesson by creating a triangle with their name in bubble or block letters. Then they folded a square piece of paper into 8 sections. The triangle was placed under the thin white paper and traced to create a radial design.
After the design was drawn the student colored in the letters of their name in the ROY G BIV color order.
The finished design was then framed on a color paper of their choice!
