To Be, Rather Than to Seem

Pre-K Investigates Symmetry Using Fall Leaves

To kick off the fall season, pre-K students headed outside for a nature walk around campus and collected leaves for a project involving symmetry. Using magnifying glasses, they observed the different properties of their selections and learned about using their senses to make observations. In order to explore the concept of symmetry, they folded the leaves in half and practiced drawing the other half of the leaf on their own paper. Not only did this lesson help the students explore some of their new science concepts, but it also combined visual arts and fine motor skills.
