5th grade: Radial Designs

I have one 5th grade class (5S) who started these radial designs a bit earlier than the other groups due to holidays, etc. Anyway, here is a sneak peek. 
Students began by thinking of an interesting design that fit in 1/4 of their circle. We looked at mandalas and radial designs from around the world and computer generated images. 

Next, students transferred designs into the rest of the circle. The one above is half done.
And then they began to create an interesting color scheme. 
The cool thing about this project is that the designs connect to create more elaborate designs.

Can't wait to see how these turn out
