4th grade students also viewed a youtube video showing real snowflake crystals up close. We looked closely to see what types of designs and shapes we could find in the snowflakes. Students noticed that a true snow crystal has six points and is fairly symmetrical. We talked about positive and negative space. Using the inspiration from the video and our class discussion, they designed their own symmetrical snowflakes on a half sheet of paper, making sure to save each part they cut out. The tricky part was arranging their papers to create a mirror image snowflake, using both the positive and negative shape. You can see what was accomplished with extra effort and enthusiasm!

Inspired by this project on Artsonia.
