My class has recently been studying right triangles and the pythagorean theorem, so I decided to let them take a creative approach to construction with triangles: the Pythagorean Spiral (wiki it!). Students constructed their spirals, calculated the lengths of the hypotenuses and decorated. Above and below are some of the well-constructed and well-decorated results!
