Fifth grade symmetry project- hammers and headaches!

The fifth graders became very proficient hammer handlers after this lesson. It was SO noisy- but totally worth it! I cut wood into squares for them, they planned their design (using their math standards we reviewed, thank you Mrs. Orihuela!), painted, then added nails as close together as possible (that was the tough part!) to enhance their design and then colored the heads of the nails if wanted. There were so many visual layers to explore- it was awesome!

Ahhhhhh- hammering ;).
Using their brainstorming worksheets as a reference. Painting their design.

They built upon their painted design by using different size nails.

The happy faces cracked me up- clever!!!

They used paint pens to paint the tips of the nails.
