|Pattern and Design in Nature|
This activity suggests that art is a fun way to encourage children to see the world around them and increase their visual awareness. Students observe natural objects like shells, rocks, minerals, and plants and notice that they have subtle and striking detail, regularity of pattern, texture, and shape. By exploring natural design, students will be encouraged to observe the natural world more closely and will begin to observe natural objects carefully and note intricate design and structure beyond surface form. In discussion, students will learn how patterns result from natural growth processes and land-shaping processes.
