In our continuing work on repeating patterns, we enjoyed touring the school this week in search of repeating patterns around Millgrove. We found that repeating patterns are truly all over the place, and the students composed collages of some of their favourites. We also learned about the process of designing fabric, and used our knowledge of repeating patterns to design our very own fabrics and identifying their elements, rules, and cores. It’s neat to see that the concepts we learn about in Math time are visible all around us in real life!
