Prior to this lesson, students will be engaged in a unit of study around symmetry in our world. This lesson is a culminating assessment integrating 3D printing and the study of symmetry. Students will be creating their own snowflake to demonstrate their understanding of the symmetry with the option to create in several different programs.
Students will be creating their own snowflake to demonstrate their understanding of symmetry.
Students will be able to explain how their snowflake is symmetrical.
Step 1: Understanding Symmetry
Students will learn about symmetry and use this knowledge to transfer it into a snowflake design.
Step 2: Using Morphi
See the video tutorial about the drawing tools. Extension - add a word to your snowflake.
Step 3: Using Snowflake Maker website, jpeg to svg converter, and Tinkercad
Step 4: Printing the Snowflakes
Step 5: Extensions
Art - After the snowflakes are printed, students can create dioramas or a showcase of different lines of symmetry.
Make a Flake Website Option - First Step
