Name Designs-- Inspired by Islamic Art-- 5th/6th grade


In this project, we studied the repeating patterns found in Islamic art.  These students have studied about Islam in their Social Studies class.  This project also ties into geometry and math.  I have been doing this project for a few years now, and the results have always been stunning!  I originally found this lesson in an old School Arts magazine from the 90's.  Last year, I posted a tutorial with steps to achieve the designs.
