Week 1: Basic ShapeS

Geometric Shapes: Sphere

Step 1: Draw a vertical line and a horizontal line perpendicular to each other about 5 inches in length. Draw a center mark at 2.5 inches.

Step 2. Draw an arc to and through each length and height mark, making sure that all four quadrants are equal.

Ellipses on a beach ball: Notice that even though a beach ball has six different colored segments, they are created with just three ellipses. Each ellipse has its own major and minor axis.
Note: The line on this beach ball connects the rotated top and bottom of the ball. It is not the center line of any of the ellipses.
