The doors were the first thing we did and then we backtracked and explore patterns and their role in Islamic art. I got the idea for this project over here, but I adapted it a bit. The children were given pre-cut slabs and I had examples of middle eastern archway shapes for them to take a look at. The children were given scrap paper that was cut to the same size as their slabs-- they had to fold it in half and draw half an arch, then once they cut the folded paper it was perfectly symmetrical.
