Day 78: Snowflakes!!

Today was so fun! We started by presenting the ultimate goal, which was to make this:

Then, we watched this:

Snowflakes, starflakes, and swirlflakes: Unusual variations on the paper snowflake.

Wow! They struggled! It was very interesting to see their attempts. Most students cut out the part they were trying to keep and created the reverse of their goal, at lease twice before they figured it out. Some students never even came close. I was also impressed with their persistence and the awesome look of satisfaction when they finally got it. Yay for CCSS SMP1!

Common first attempts….
