Dear Suzanne,
I was looking through your magic square pages the other night. I
thought about some sort of correlating art activity with that Ben
Franklin magic sqaure also. It almost reminds me of one of those name
"scribble" desgins that I often have my students do on the first day of
school. In language arts, they can also write a creative piece to go
with their design. (There's an integration for math and language
arts!!) I was also interested in finding out some background
information about that piece of art entitled "Parataxis." It was very
intriguing.

I also thought of something else since posting my last e-mail. Another
way of approaching the "coloring" could be like map-coloring where no
two borders that touch can be colored in the same color. Challenge the
students to color the design with as few colors as possible!!

While visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I picked up a teacher's
resource folder that dealt with patterns in Islamic art. I would be
glad to share any of that information if you are interested. It's
available from the museum for purchase for approximately $15.00 and
it's a terrific resource.
