Art with Mrs. Nguyen: Radial Paper Relief Sculptures (4th/5th) For this lesson we began by taking about what symmetry is and the difference between linear symmetry (1 line of symmetry) and radial symmetry (more than 1 line of symmetry).

Once students understood the principles behind radial symmetry and sculpture we began creating our very own radial paper relief sculptures! Students started by folding a piece of 12"x12" black construction paper diagonally both ways and vertical and horizontally (to create an 'X' crease and a '+' crease).

Evernote, Google Keep, OneNote – Which Note Taking App is the Best? Popular cross-platform ideas-saving aide-memoir Evernote has suddenly and drastically gone down in everyone's estimation, thanks to the money men winning some internal arguments and limiting the features available to users of the free version. So is it time to jump ship and start using something else to tell you a thing needs doing on Friday? Evernote has rocked its own boat by limiting the features available in its Basic account, restricting it to only working with two synced devices -- meaning if you're modern and juggle a laptop, desktop, work PC, mobile phone, tablet and internet-connected fridge, you're not going to be able to carry on using Evernote for free.
