These templates can be used by students to explore tessellations with regular polygons. Students can explore both pure and semi-pure tessellations.
A Template with just pictures of the polygons
A template with the number of sides on the polygon
A template with the name of the polygon
A chart with the names, number of sides and measure of one angle
Student can either cut out the shapes or trace the shapes to perform translations and tessellations.
Each template is made up of polygons with 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 sided polygons. All polygons have sides which are all congruent. This makes it easy to perform tessellations.
