These are two kinds of spirals I made using squared paper.

The first uses the little squares to make the spiral.

The second uses the sides of the little squares to build the spiral.

I gave myself some rules (often a good idea!):

- There is a space I kept the same width throughout, making them a kind of "open" spiral.
- I finished each spiral in line with where it started in the middle.
- I would make a number of spirals each one having more than one "circuit" (going around) than the previous one.

These two are therefore not ok.

I then started exploring things like the number of little squares/lines in my group of spirals.

**So now is the time for you to explore your own growing spirals.**

You might like to look at the same idea when numbers are used instead of blue squares.

Here is a starting idea;

We'd love you to share how you've tried this and what you've discovered.
