St Patrick's Day Art - Shamrock

St Patrick's Day Art - Shamrock

A ‘Fun with a Ruler’ art project for your students to complete on St Patrick’s Day. There are 2 different templates to choose from. This project involves your students ruling straight lines between 2 dots on a template. When they have finished drawing all of the lines they can give their artwork some colour. There is space at the bottom of each template for a writing task that you may wish to set (eg ‘If I found a pot of gold I would …’). If you don’t want this, simply cut the artwork out when finished. Included: ♦ Shamrock with pot of gold. ♦ Shamrock without pot of gold. ♦ Shamrock – draw your own stem, without pot of gold. ♦ Practise template. ♦ Example of the completed design. ♦ Instructions. The templates are provided in both black and light grey dots. Level of Difficulty: Your students need to be able to use a ruler to draw straight lines between 2 points. The designs can look more complicated than they actually are. Concentration is required, but the actual process is not difficult. Instructions: Simple, clear, easy-to-follow instructions are provided. One instruction per page (image and a sentence). Display the instructions via a data projector if you have access to one. Otherwise print and enlarge them and/or demonstrate on an enlarged template. Practise Tempate: A practise template is included for your students to practise ruling the pattern before you give them the actual template. Equipment: You need a ruler and a pen (black or green works best for this project). Something to colour with (eg coloured pencils, watercolours, felt tip markers, chalk pastels, dye, etc) Keywords: string art, math, geometry, patterns, Ireland, Irish, luck. © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources
