#### What educators are saying

Wonderful to use with our wrap up of geometry unit. Great examples for students and step-by-step directions and practice pages were super helpful.
My students loved observing tessellations through the PowerPoint. The instructions were clear and easy to use. I used origami paper and it worked perfectly.

### Description

Included in this package are several tessellation activities and resources...

1. Tessellation PowerPoint: An introduction to what tessellations are, a brief history, M.C. Escher (with a link to a interview he did), his influences, his artwork, and the three main types of transformations used in making tessellations – translation, rotation, and reflections. This PowerPoint includes animated slides, which make it easier for students to visualize the shape’s movements.

2. Color Your Own Worksheets: Grid-filled pages that students can demonstrate how to draw translation, rotation, and reflection tessellations on.

3. Practicing Transformations Worksheet: Worksheet asks students to reflect specific shapes over horizontal and vertical axes, translate shapes, and rotate shapes.

4. Step-by-Step Direction Sheets: Three step-by-step instruction sheets with visuals showing how to create stencils for all three transformations. These instructions also match up with the included videos, which also demonstrate how to create them step-by-step.

5. Practice Tessellation Sheet: This page includes the base stencil for all three transformations shown in the videos and step-by-step sheets.

6. Transformation Videos: 3 videos demonstrating how to create a reflection tessellation, translation tessellation, and rotation tessellation (including how to do a graphite transfer or light table/window transfer for complex details).

I would definitely recommend starting with the PowerPoint and then having your students try to make a translation tessellation (definitely the easiest of the three). If you're looking for more of a challenge, the rotation and reflection tessellations are a bit trickier.
