About This Lesson

The beautiful patterns woven into Navajo blankets not only tell a cultural story but they also demonstrate several math concepts in geometry. This activity will share the traditional process of weaving a Navajo blanket through video and story. Then, young people learn and practice tessellation, a geometric art process, to create a design of their own.
