What a fun math filled lesson this has been for the 3rd graders!
They learned about the textile art native of Panama called Molas!
They first drew a large animal in the center of their papers then they could use stencils to make smaller animals as long as they made both sides identical, or symmetrical. This definition was reinforced through out the entire lesson. Then they went around the lines they drew, using different colors every time.
The results were awesome!
Till next time!
