First grade students ventured outside today to create their own Rangoli designs.  Rangoli are typically done outside of homes in India.  They are beautiful radial designs that some women apply on the ground outside their homes every morning.  They are usually believed to bring good luck.
Students created their design by folding one fourth of a circle and cutting it into a symmetrical design.  This was then used as their stencil which they rotated four times on the ground to create a design with rotational symmetry!  It was so nice to take our art making outdoors!!!
