Symmetrical Pumpkin

Symmetrical-PumpkinOne more Halloween project that makes for a very graphic image.
1. Give each student a square piece of black paper and an orange piece that is half the width of the black. With the orange lying on top of the right side of the black, they are to imagine the center line as the middle of a pumpkin.
2. Students draw half of a pumpkin on the orange paper. Next, one eye and one half of a mouth are drawn. When complete, the eye and mouth are cut out, all as complete shapes, no bits and pieces. Students may “cheat” with the eye by cutting a line over to it and then cutting around to get the triangle out. The little slice will seal itself back up when glued.
3. The newly cut shapes are to be flopped from their cut out positions, and then glued down with a glue stick. Voila, a positive/negative and symmetrical pumpkin face!
