Launch of Traveling Tangle Project is a HIT!
February 20, 2017 • Leave a Comment
Somewhere around Christmas, I asked my students if they would be interested in participating in a Traveling Tangle Project. After explaining what this meant, a few students got to work and the results are below!
The Traveling Tangle Project starts when Tangler A grabs a tile and starts it off with a border, a string, and a tangle or two. Then they send this tile to Tangler B who completes the tile by adding their own tangles. At the same time, Tangler B is starting off a new tile the same way to send it off to Tangler A. As far as shading, each tangler can shade their own tangles or the first Tangler can leave it up to second Tangler to shade the entire tile. The main rule is that when you receive a Traveling Tangle tile, you take a Before picture and when you are done you take an After picture, then send them both to me.
This collaboration is always exciting! We have Tanglers that like curvy lines paired up with Tanglers that like grids...think of the possibilities! There are Tanglers that use thick pens to draw, but what happens when that tile is sent to a Tangler that normally uses a thin pen? It's all magic and exciting!
If you want to join our Traveling Tangle Project, send me an email with your name and address and I will get you started.
Hover over each picture below for the tangler's names!
