Good morning!
Here are the answers in repsonse to the questions you posed--
#1. The only real writing prompt I use for the language arts lesson is
that when the students' name designs are completed (and they are
symmetrical designs -reflection symmetry) they do tend to resemble
"aliens." I tell the students to make up a story about their
character; ie. give it a name, what planet they're from, etc. and the
students take it from there.

#2. Couldn't the Ben Franklin designs be colored individually? Or,
each piece be done to be a reflection of the other? Or make each half
of each desgin symmetrical to each other? From there, make each piece
a reflection of one another?

#3. There is a web site for the Metropolitan Museum. The URL is
http://www.metmuseum.org. You can reach the gift shop by using the URL
http://www5.metmuseum.org. I looked at both of these areas and
unfortunately the publication I am referring to is not featured at this
time. I guess it would be impossible for them to include all of their
items. There was a toll-free # 1-800-468-7386. Let me know if you
need any other information regarding this material. I have a copy of
it in my personal library.

Hope these are of some help!
