St Andrew's Day Worksheets
Bring St Andrew's Day into the classroom (or home) with this small but growing collection of fun worksheets and story paper for the kids.
This is quite a tricky exercise - to break down how the "real" tartan design is made up, then translate it into your own version in the square on the right. We have three of these worksheets to challenge the kids.
Can the kids work out how this real tartan design is created, weaving the warp and weft threads together? Having worked it out, copy it across into the square on the right.
Try breaking down the tartan design in the small square into blocks of warp and weft colours to understand how the tartan is created, before re-creating it in the larger square. This is a challenging tartan worksheet!
Tartan designs can be simple or complex, but they are all based on blocks of colour in the warp and weft threads crossing over at right angles to form different hues where they meet. Use this worksheet to create your own tartan design.
This "design a tartan" worksheet is based on a traditional tartan design - and it isn't an easy one! Use the smaller square to work out your own mixture of colours and try it out, the move over to the bigger square for your final version.
We've got four variations of this printable acrostic poem sheet with Scottish flag illustration. Time for some patriotic poetry!
Kids can use this printable story paper featuring a picture of two children in traditional Scottish clothing for descriptive writing, or for making up a Scottish story!
