Provide students with several pieces of Crayola® Construction Paper. Fold the multiple colors of the construction paper in half. Draw different shapes on the paper and cut out with Crayola Scissors. Cutting two shapes at one time will create two identical shapes.
Students arrange the shapes on a piece of black construction paper so that if it was folded in half the shapes would be symmetrical.
For the shapes in the center of the page, students will cut one shape in half, placing one half on each side of the center folded line to create symmetry. Glue the shapes in place with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Using a Crayola Gel Marker, students outline each shape with different colors.
Students glue the black construction paper to another piece of colored construction paper to create a frame.
