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.

This is Design D (poppy). Other designs are also available in my store: Design A - wreath Design B - cross Design C - medal Keywords: string art, parabolic curves, math, geometry, patterns, war, symbolism, veteran ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources
