Create a die-cut wreath with a circle or square opening by folding the paper before cutting.
WREATH FOLD: This technique can be used to create any circular or square wreath using virtually any die-cut shape. Wreaths can be used for anything from classroom decor to creative lessons and holiday gifts.
Create two-dimensional wreaths to identify lines of symmetry.
Supplies Used: Construction Paper, Glue, Pens, Scissors
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
Mathematics, Grade 4: Geometry
4.G 3. Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
Pre-K-8: Instructional programs from Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 should enable all students to use and apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations.
Pre-K-8: Instructional programs from Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 should enable all students to use visualization, spatial reasoning and geometric modeling to solve problems.
