"Tessellations aren't fun at all and nobody likes to make them." -said no one EVER!
Tessellations are created with very special shapes that fit together when repeated in a pattern. After researching many materials dealing with tessellation, I was dissatisfied with their usefulness as teaching resources...So I made my own. This product now features 48 pages of worksheets, templates, instructions, and examples. I've illustrated numerous methods for creating tiles that tessellate in a project that is simple enough for young beginners yet provides endless challenges for advanced students. Creating a tessellation is a great project for math or art class.
This project addresses creativity, polygons, symmetry, reflection, rotation, mechanical drawing and more.
