Notans, 4th and 5th Grade
My 4th and 5th graders created Notions. Notan is a Japanese word for the interactions between dark and light. Traditionally Notans use a black square piece of paper, which is then cut to create symmetrical images that play with the idea of positive and negative space. It also ties perfectly into geometry, since Notans focus on reflections/flips.
