This lesson is inspired by Deep Space Sparkle. I fell in love with this project the moment I saw it. I wanted to turn it into a one day lesson for students to complete right before Valentine’s Day so I decided to have students make theirs very small.
We used a 4×4 piece of paper, a heart template (made from poster board), a ruler, and colored pencils. First we followed the Deep Space Sparkle directions to section off the heart into polygons and triangles to make it looks like a gemstone. 4th graders are learning about angles in math so this was a great connection.
Then students used colored pencils to color in their designs. These are so cute and they were the perfect little Valentine’s Day project!
