Drawing a Space Shuttle Using Symmetry Lesson Plan- CC Week 2


Teach your students about symmetry, Leonardo da Vinci, and astronomy with this quick art lesson.


I designed this lesson plan on symmetry for our Classical Conversations Community to use during week 2 of Drawing Basics. I included everything you need and made it easy to scale for different ability levels.

It includes:

  • A quick grammar-level discussion on symmetry with references to Leonardo da Vinci.
  • A picture of da Vinci’s drawing show the symmetry of the human body (with well-placed text boxes to block out the nudity).
  • A warm up exercise for drawing symmetry.
  • Materials list and Instructions for a space shuttle drawing project.
  • Two space shuttle drawings (one simpler and one more complex) for use in the project.

This is a PDF file, so you’ll need a PDF Reader to view and print it. Download a free PDF Reader here: https://get.adobe.com/reader/.
