Teach students about radial design with this lesson plan. Students will read a text lesson that explains what radial design is and how it works, then analyze examples and do a fun hands-on project.

## Learning Objectives

After this lesson, students will be able to:

• explain how radial design works
• analyze examples of radial design

1 - 1.5 hours

## Materials

• Copies of the lesson Radial Design: Definition & Examples, one for each student
• Examples of radial design for warm-up
• Examples of radial design, one for each partner pair
• Paper
• Colored pencils
• Rulers
• Paint
• Paint brushes
• Canvas, as needed

• Focal point
• Symmetrical
• Asymmetrical

## Curriculum Standards

• CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.9-10.4

Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language of a court opinion differs from that of a newspaper).

• CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.9-10.3

Follow precisely a complex multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks, attending to special cases or exceptions defined in the text.

• CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.9-10.4

Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 9-10 texts and topics.

## Warm-Up and Preparation

• Share a few images that demonstrate radial design with students, asking them to notice what these pieces have in common.
• If students aren't able to identify radial design concepts, give them a clue by telling them to think of a clock, wheel and daisy, then allow students to identify the central point in the examples.
• Tell students this is called radial design and allow students to share prior knowledge, then preview vocabulary.
