Patterns in Nature Curricular Support

Grades K–2 | This curricular support provides teachers and students with resources that align with the Patterns in Nature unit of the DCPS Arts Framework.

As part of the Determination learning arc, students explore patterns, shapes, rhythm, symmetry in art, and art inspired by nature. The activity guide highlights mosaics from the Pre-Columbian and Byzantine Collections at Dumbarton Oaks and is accompanied by activities including close-looking at art and mosaic-making.
