Symmetry Designs

My high school students did this project on symmetry about a month ago.  We discussed different kinds of symmetry and asymmetry as well.  Students were to create a design using one type of symmetry (vertical, horizontal, or radial) and then they were to color them using asymmetry by doing opposites or adding patterns.  I made the students choose one color plus white for this project.  We used sharpies because my students love sharpies way better than regular markers.  Overall I think this was a great lesson using some basic ideas on a higher level that was good for the beginning of the year.  I enjoyed the variety that it created in terms of design and color which also reflected the students and their personalities.
