Explore symmetry in nature. Investigate the insect world, then create colorful butterflies, dragonflies, damselflies, and other symmetrical creatures.
Use library and electronic resources to investigate the insect world. Pay special attention to designs on wings. Identify the body parts of insects (head, thorax, abdomen, legs, wings, antennae). Compare and contrast insect groups (such as butterflies, beetles, dragonflies, and ants).
Design your own symmetrical insects. Fold paper in half. Use a black Crayola® Washable Marker to draw half of the insect. Be sure the center of the insect body meets the fold. Add detailed wing and body designs in your outline.
Turn over the folded paper. Trace the image you see through the paper. You may need to hold your folded paper against a sunny window or a light table so the image on the other half is easy to see.
Open the paper. Add color to the outlined design with Crayola Crayons. As each area is colored, fill in the same area in the same color on the other half to make the insect symmetrical. Color all areas with crayon, including the background. Rub your entire drawing with a paper towel to give it a glossy sheen.
