KinderArt® Lesson/Activity

3D ORNAMENTS

Grade: 4-6
Age: 8-12

Submitted by: Glenn Allan, a teacher at Lake Munmorah Public School in Australia.

Objectives:

To make a Christmas decoration whilst developing an understanding of symmetry.

What You Need:

  • Paper - either white or paper of different colors
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Thread

What You Do:

  1. Fold your piece of paper along a line of symmetry.

  2. On one side of the fold draw a half a Christmas shape. e.g. a Christmas Tree, Angel, Star, Santa, Bell etc. (any object that is symmetrical)

  3. Trace the pattern onto the other half of the paper so that the design is perfectly symmetrical.

  4. Color or decorate the design and cut it out.

  5. Repeat this process so that you have at least 3 identical shapes (the older children should be able to handle several shapes).

  6. Glue all these shapes back to back

  7. Old Christmas cards could be used for this
