Fourth Grade Artists used the lines and shapes in the letters of their  names to create a SYMMETRICAL NAME DESIGN. They began by folding their paper to establish a LINE OF SYMMETRY. Next they wrote their names on the fold with a primary pencil. They tried to stretch out their letters to fill the SPACE. They then  folded their paper with their name on the inside and used a smooth hard object (we used the bottom of a sharpie) to rub where their name was written to TRANSFER the lines and shapes to the other side of paper. A MIRROR IMAGE was created.

The artists used their creative thinking to complete the project by adding details and coloring their design to continue the symmetrical BALANCE.

They are so much fun to look at!
