Radial Balance, Beautiful in all directionsI

In 2nd grade, we learn about RADIAL BALANCE. This is a wonderful opportunity to create these beautiful radial designs that look the same in all directions. This is one of the students favorite projects and they begin finding things in radial balance everywhere. Process: * Trace a circle on black paper and cut it out carefully. * Fold the circle in half, then in half again, and in half once more. * When opened up, the circle should have 4 long folds (8 sections) showing the middle of the circle. * Using pencils, students can begin creating their designs, making sure to do the same thing in each of the 8 sections. * Students can then paint in designs and finish up with oil pastels.
