Product Description
This art activity can be used for any theme, not just as a ‘lucky four leaf clover’.

The activity involves your students ruling straight lines between 2 dots on a template. When they have finished drawing all of the lines they can give their artwork some colour. The example shows writing in each leaf, but you can change this if you wish.

♦ Template – black dots
♦ Template – light grey dots
♦ Example
♦ Instructions
♦ Teacher notes
♦ Coloured example

Level of Difficulty:
Your students need to be able to use a ruler to draw straight lines between 2 points (the curves are made with straight lines … it’s like magic!). The designs can look more complicated than they actually are. Concentration is required, but the actual process is not difficult.

Simple, clear, easy-to-follow instructions are provided. One instruction per page (image and a sentence). Display the instructions via a data projector if you have access to one. Otherwise print and enlarge them and/or demonstrate on an enlarged template.

Practise Tempate:
A practise template is included for your students to practise ruling the pattern before you give them the actual template.

You need a ruler and a pen (black works best). Something to colour with (eg coloured pencils, watercolours, felt tip markers, chalk pastels, dye, etc)

The square is approximately 17cm x 17cm. Designed on A4 size paper.
