Lesson 14 Wax Prints
Let’s analyze and make wax prints.
Warm-up Notice and Wonder: Textiles
What do you notice? What do you wonder?
Activity 1 Create a Wax Print Pattern
Your teacher will give you some dot paper for drawing.
Use the dot paper to design your own wax print pattern. Your pattern should:
use a rhombus, rectangle, or square
use a quadrilateral that is not a rhombus, rectangle, or square
have each shape repeat at least 5 times
Color the pattern in a way that highlights the shapes you chose or choices you made.
Activity 2 Info Gap: The Bundle
Your teacher will give you either a problem card or a data card. Do not show or read your card to your partner.
Pause here so your teacher can review your work. Ask your teacher for a new set of cards and repeat the activity, trading roles with your partner.
Where do you see rhombuses in the design?
Where do you see rectangles in the design?
Are there any triangles in the design?
