My first thought is to create tiles. Both texture and pattern could be
incorporated into a neat lesson. You could do cardboard or oaktag tiles if
they all start their pattern at the same points on the sides it could make
an interesting collage at the end. Colors could be restricted to build some
continuity. A nice way of showing the sum of the parts....
