Symmetrical Portraits 

2nd graders further explored symmetry by drawing themselves! 

We folded pieces of construction paper in half and using a white oil pastel drew half of their faces. We then folded the papers in half and rubbed the oil pastel onto the other half. Opening them up we saw that they were the mirror image on the other half of the line! 

They then finished up by adding color with oil pastels! Check them out!

  1. Wow! Great job. I have seen names done this way but had not thought to do the pastel with portraits. Great project.
