This is my new favorite project with the older students, exploring radial symmetry in the form of handprinted tiles.
Their designs start with the block positioned like a diamond and the center line going from corner to corner. Students need to draw knowing that the sides will line up to create new shapes where corners meet and sides meet!
Planning, printing stations, and a tidy work area are crucial.
On the back of each block mark one corner as "top," this is really important to make sure the image is in registration.
