Turtle Shell Rabbit Trail

Last week…

we ran across a hexagonal turtle shell pattern while looking at an art book…

which led to looking at pictures of turtle shells to see if they’re ever truly hexagonal (sort of, just not symmetrical)…

which led to our attempt to re-create the original, mythical, symmetrical, hexagonal turtle shell.

It doesn’t take much to entertain us… or to send us on a rabbit trail.

Reference books that made this rabbit trail educational:

A Child’s Book of Art, Micklethwait
National Geo Wild Animal Atlas
