Using templates are fun for all ages and are useful when teaching patterning, repetition and other design skills. They are also very beneficial in improving fine motor skills in young children. For this project, I laid out a large amount of templates and allowed the students to choose and share what they wanted. They first used a pencil to trace shapes. I encouraged them to think about symmetry, overlapping and color when they designed their artwork. The students used markers to color the designs in.
