Op Art Spinners
Grade Level: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
In this lesson plan, students create their own hand-held “fidget spinners” as kinetic art — discs, gears, and designs that rotate around a center axis. When patterns and colors on multiple layers spin together, they can fool the eye and create colorful illusions. Take one for a spin!
