Out of this world!
Symmetrical Name Aliens and Bugs What is symmetry? Symmetry is what occurs when one side of something BALANCES out or mirrors the other. If you were to draw a midline from the top of your forehead, down the middle of your nose, over your lips and to the bottom of your chin, you could see that your eyes, ears, nostrils, and teeth all mirror each other on either side of the line.

8. HAVE FUN, BE CREATIVE, AND SHOW OFF WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT PATTERNS AND VARIETIES OF LINE AND SHAPE Ours will look a little different from this because we are using BLACK paper and special, colorful art sticks Using the Elements: LINE, SHAPE, AND COLOR
