Our art project today was actually all about Maths. We learned about tessellating shapes. These are shapes that fit together perfectly, with no gaps and nothing overlapping. Floor tiles are an example of this. Shapes such as squares, rectangles and triangles are usually used for tessellating, but this is too simple for The Smarties! We wanted a challenge, so we designed our own shapes to use!
First, we took a rectangular piece of card and drew a shape on two of its sides. We cut them out and then taped them to the opposite sides. Then, we simply traced around our shape over and over. We could decorate them using two patterns. They're not all finished yet, so we'll post pictures of them tomorrow, but here's a sneak peek at Alex's.
Love from The Smarties and Mrs N
