Patterns and Shapes
This week’s project was all about patterns and shapes. The kids were encouraged to look for patterns around us. We looked at windows and different burglar bars, identifying squares, triangles or rectangular. We looked at a water bowl and investigated the ripples made when we throw a stone or
alternative object into the water. We looked at fabric patterns, prints on the street from tires or shoes.
Once we open our eyes we become aware of interesting patterns formulated by natural or manmade colours, lines and shapes. It becomes an area that we can see and explore. Each child was given a small square of cardboard to fill with patterns and colours. By the end of the session we formulated all the patterns together and created a beautiful mosaic tapestry.
