This lesson was definitely rewarding for my students though it did require doing the same drawing twice as they spun the paper and repeated their ideas. They painted with tempera paints and metallics then outlined in black and metallic markers. When they were finished I photographed and printed their paintings small enough to look like a real playing card. Though the lesson teaches symmetry, it is really a test of observational drawing skills. These 5th graders really wowed me with their skill & attention to detail.
I put the whole lesson with resources and print outs together in one ppt that you can download from TpT here.
