Patterns in Nature

Our children enjoyed exploring our garden today and noticed that we had lots of spiders webs under our roof area.

We discussed how clever the spiders were in making their own webs and looked at the different shapes and sizes of each web. We pointed out all the lovely patterns the spiders had made.

We had a look through our books to see if we could find any other nature patterns. The children chose to look at our “Swirls in Nature” book because it had spiders webs in it and lots of other lovely swirly patterns.

We drew some swirls on paper and the children had lots of fun using natural resources such as stones, pine cones and conkers to make a swirl pattern.

We would love to see any patterns in nature you might have found!
