For the holiday concert this year the music teacher decided to feature an amazing Middle Eastern song. I am in charge of coming up with decorations for the concerts, so I showed the 6th graders some images of Islamic tiles. We then talked about different kinds of symmetry, and they created their own tiles. We hung these behind the risers and then hung stars and lanterns around the gym. It looked pretty neat! Here are some of the tiles they created. *NOTE their tiles are not crooked-my pictures are!
