## Symmetric Art: Math

Applicable to grades K5-2nd,

In this lesson, students will learn and recognize the differences of symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes and creatively design art using shapes.

**Connections to STEAM:**

Understanding the basic concepts of geometry.

Relating the mathematical concepts to outside of the classroom.

**Connections to social development: **

Perception of space

Creativity

Critical Thinking

Problem Solving

**Standard K.G.2:** Identify and describe a given shape and shapes of objects in everyday situations to include twodimensional shapes (i.e., triangle, square, rectangle, hexagon, and circle) and three-dimensional shapes (i.e., cone, cube, cylinder, and sphere).

**Standard 1.G.1:** Distinguish between a two-dimensional shape’s defining (e.g., number of sides) and non-defining attributes (e.g., color).

**Standard 2.G.1:** Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, hexagons, and cubes. Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces
