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.
