Geometry in Art! Oh My!!

Third graders stretch their brains to the maximum with this exercise in rotational symmetry. A 1″x1″ eraser is carved in a pattern and students experiment with color combinations using waterbased markers as ink. Next a four tile rotation pattern is stamped, and that section of four is then repeated three more times for the 4×4 pattern you see here. I adapted this project from a high school lesson, which makes these beautiful and difficult patterns that much more impressive. Wouldn’t this look great on fabric? Or maybe a tile floor?
