Our school, Santísima Trinidad, is celebrating a solidary week to support a nutritional centre in Mexico.
All classes are supporting and helping in many ways.
Since all the activities held are intended to support the Celaya NUTRITIONAL CENTER, in Mexico, second graders have chosen the dahlia, considered one of the natural symbols of Mexico, to make drawings to decorate the schoolyard. The dahlia was declared in 1963 as a symbol of the National Floriculture of Mexico, and since the year 2008, 4th of August is considered as “the national day of the dahlia.”.
In addition, this flower is a great example of the natural presence of the golden proportion in nature:
This is the video that we used to draw them. If you pay attention, you will realize that the drawing starts from a pentagonal shape, so present in multiple patterns of nature:
In this other video you can discover many interesting things about the golden ratio.
These are some of the dahlias we have drawn.
