This HowTo is about using Pattern Blocks in the classroom. All you need is a classroom set of pattern blocks and a camera. Each student or group of students is given a set of pattern blocks and a time limit. The assignment: make an artwork that illustrates the concept of symmetry, small enough to fit on a single student desk. When the art is finished, take a photograph of it and then let the students vote to choose their favorites.
Here is a short video that uses fast motion to show a pattern block artwork being created:
