Do you want your students to learn how to fold and make paper hearts with a 100% success rate? If you are a tired of your students struggling with making paper hearts because they keep cutting them in half, wind up with non-heart shapes, or make asymmetrical shapes, then you need to use the Symmetrical Heart Collage art project in your classroom!
This downloadable zip file includes everything a busy educator needs to teach how to make successful paper hearts. First, there is a 2 page PDF lesson plan that connects this art making activity to the National Core Arts Standards. Additionally, there is a comprehensive “Symmetrical Heart Collage” PowerPoint tutorial included. This craft demonstration includes 69 slides. The presentation includes illustrative photographs along with descriptive text. This tutorial may seem like overkill, but the prepared demonstration will save you many headaches. First of all, the prepared presentation assures that students can see the demonstration. Furthermore, this will prevent you from having to make an example every time you teach this lesson. Because the demo is prepared, you can go back and repeat step easily without wasting any supplies. You can also demonstrate at a faster pace, which allows you to interact with your students more.
This lesson plan is perfect for introducing young students to symmetry or the act of making a collage. Implement this lesson plan before Valentine’s Day so students will know how to make hearts independently.
To make a complete unit on symmetry, use the Matching Mittens lesson plan and activity.
