I have had MIRAs forever and never put them to use. Today, we made MIRA snowflakes in the 20 minutes after lunch. It was a quick crash course. It really ended up being a course in following directions. We have used compasses before, so we were familiar with that, but the MIRA was new.
Here are my directions:
Here are Period 5's snowflakes. We ran out of time, but if you notice, they all have 6 parts.
Period 6 has 29 kids and is very loud and energetic. They did not listen to the directions as well. You can see - some have 4 parts, some have 8 parts, some skinny in the middle. They should be skinny at the edge and fatter in the middle.
