Skeletons, Ghouls and Rotational Symmetry

5 Oct

Amazing Skeleton snowflake by She Walks Softly Author and a great demonstration of rotational symmetry.

This Ghouls and bats template can be downloaded from here, courtesy of Extreme Cards Blog Spot showing rotational symmetry of order four.

A wide variety of creepy snowflake templates can be downloaded from PaperPumpkins

A rotational spider template can be downloaded from New Halloween Games here.

These snowflakes are great and look amazing when done but they require a steady hand. Instead you could ask pupils to create their own spooky snowflake with a given order of symmetry.

Check out Matters of Grey and Anthony Herrera’s star wars snowflakes which are fabulous and should be kept in mind for Christmas.

Join this activity with the hama bead activity described in Hama Bead & Symmetry blog here for another rotational symmetry activity, you may want to buy extra orange and black beads for Halloween!
