Tukutuku Panels

Room 11 studied tukutuku panels for our maths unit on tessellations.  We researched the history about several tukutuku panels and what they smbolised.

Patikitiki - is symbolic of the flounder
Poutama - is symbolic for the stairway to heaven
Niho Taniwha - is symbolic for the teeth of a monster.
Roimata - is symbolic for the albatross tears.

Here are some of the panels that we created, using colours that reminded us of the wonderful autumn colours.
