The Insets for Design - Exercise 8
- The child can be shown different aspects of symmetry. For
example, show the child how to make a pattern in which one half
is a mirror image of the other half. The mirror image can also
form along the diagonal.
- These exercises can lead on to an understanding of design.
The children should be helped to notice design in their environment.
To learn how to observe the environment with intelligence leads
on to knowledge. The children can notice design in their clothes
and patterns in tile, in architecture, and in great books of
art. Show the children design used in different cultures and
in different periods of history. This study can lead to further
study of art, history, and other cultures.
