Stamped Snowflakes

1st graders learned how to make snowflakes with some unexpected materials recently.  We used lasagna noodles, marker caps, popsicle sticks, and shape stampers to stamp six-sided beauties like these.  We worked on radial symmetry - all six sides should have the same pattern.  This lesson was definitely a hit!  Students loved the freedom of design and the satisfying results.  There was lots of prep on my part, but it was gratifying to see all of the learning taking place!
