This is one of my go-to projects when I need to introduce pattern. The results are stunning and I have about a 100% success rate even for the the kids who struggle with completing their art projects. We talk about creating interesting patterns using simple lines and shapes. I created a slideshow of Zentangle patterns so the students can see some interesting examples of line patterns. Here are some of the 6th grade drawings that were completed this morning. We will be adding color next week.
