This activity was based on Islamic Art and Geometric Design from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The kids enjoyed this activity so much that our 30 minute math session turned into 2 hours. Even then, they weren't ready to stop working for free time outside until I promised them we could continue the activity the next day.
Creating the grids was a valuable learning activity, but to repeat the project grid creation becomes a chore. So I created the basic grid. Please feel free to download it for personal or classroom use.
