Parabolic curves M13

 Gretchen's lesson
8 year olds

Parabolic curves require very little introduction for the children. They were aware of them and motivated to make their own. I introduced a simple right angled parabolic curve. We went through the steps to make one, slowly. They moved on to make another with ease.

 We followed up with a circular parabolic curve. Most of the children grasped the variation easily.

The children practiced the shapes they liked best. Then I asked them to make a piece of art, using the curves. They used pencils and coloured pencils, keeping patterns in mind when they added colour.
