Hey Paige,
This post brought back memories! I did the radial symmetry Name design when I was a sophomore in high school for my geometry class. I also did a radial symmetry project in Art class in high school. I believe the name design would have had more of an effect if my teachers had done the same project when I was younger. Most of my memories from school are from the hands-on projects we did to emphasize a lesson. The Arts and hands-on projects are truly an important addition to all classes, math, science, English, and more. Your blog has many inspirational points!
Sincerely,
Kameron Strickland

I'm so glad you have found some useful ideas Kameron. I like to focus on the arts as a strategy teachers can use to teach other content.
