This is an exciting project for the students. Trace a circle shape on a piece of paper. The template included here will make a completed circle about eighteen inches in diameter. To make a smaller circle, trace a circle on a sheet of paper and cut it out. Then fold it in half, in fourths and then in eighths. One eighth (pie shape) will be the pattern for this project. Begin by giving each student one eighth of a circle for them to design. This project is appropriate for any class, with a some changes.Â You’ll find this, “Radial Designs,” project in the 5th Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
