After exploring the different structures that come out of the Platonic
Solids with the magnetic tools, Termes hands out small spheres to the
students. Before anything is done to the sphere, they explore many of
their own designs on triangles, squares and if it is older students, the
pentagon. They then pick one of their designs to draw onto the sphere.
Termes shows them how to draw a cube, octahedron, icosahedron or a
dodecahedron on the sphere which are made up of triangles, squares and
pentagons. They repeat their design onto the sphere. Once they get their
design on the sphere they use black permanent pens to outline it and
colored permanent pens to fill in the patterns. Every sphere ends up
totally different. This workshop needs 2 hours of time.
