This is cool…

Radial symmetry is where an organism has almost identical looking parts if cut into a pie.  Only the top and bottom look different.  

The sea anemones in this print display radial symmetry.

The video below shows how to create radial symmetry artwork.  It helps teach kids this scientific concept.

Check out how cool it is!
