Repeated Designs

The vocabulary for this lesson contains the words: random, overlap, orderly, design, and picture.

The first assignment is understanding the difference between pictures and designs.  After that I want the students to understand the difference between a design arranged in and orderly fashion and a design arranged in a random fashion.

Above you see an example of both; on the left is the orderly design and on the right is a design with the elements arranged randomly.

 Once they have the concept of random and orderly I then repeat the concept but add the idea of overlapped and no overlap designs.

The piece above is an example of overlap and not random.  I like the way the student was very clear and specific, she plainly prints, “orderly, no random” and above that she rights orderly.  This is exactly what I’m going for, a clear visual illustration of a student understanding concepts and vocabulary I’m working towards.
