Title: Symmetrical Stained Glass Window
Description:

This learning activity should be completed at the end of a geometry unit or after a lesson on symmetry. The teacher will pose a real-world problem that requires the students to create a design for a stained glass window. Using virtual manipulatives, students will work collaboratively to design a symmetrical stained glass window that has at least one line of symmetry.

This activity was created as a result of the Arts COS Resource Development Summit.
