Welcome to another Wacky Workshops project – fun activities for playing with patterns in nature.
We are surrounded by beautiful patterns everywhere we look. Some are manmade, but nature provides us with a feast of patterns, from symmetries, spirals, meanders and spots and stripes to tessellations and fractals.
Helping children spot and recognise these patterns not only gives them an extra appreciation for nature’s creations but can also help them understand maths.
This week’s projects offer some fun activities to help children spot and understand patterns in nature.
