First, we learnt about repeating patterns then we walked around the school campus collecting leaves and petals. We placed cut out strips of cotton on the hard surface of our Year 1 Atrium, placed our collected leaves and petals on top of the cotton and covered them with layers of paper towel. We then hammered gently with appropriate tools for ten minutes until our leaf and petal colours and shapes were thoroughly imprinted on pieces of cotton, creating repeating patterns.
