✅Illustrated, step by step instructions to demonstrate how to create all 3 types of tessellations using the different media for each activity.
Concepts/skill development covered included in this geometry unit plan:
✅ Definitions for tessellations, slides, reflections (AKA "flips") and rotations (AKA "turns").
✅ The 3 types of rotations (90 degrees clockwise, 90 degrees counterclockwise, and 180 degrees) are also discussed.
✅ Tracing, cutting, alignment, mentally turning and manipulating a figure
✅ Identifying tessellations (and patterns that are not tessellations)
✅ Manipulating figures to create the 3 different types of tessellations (cutting and pasting figures)
✅ Creating a figure that can be cut out and traced to result in interlocking tessellations (with no gap or overlap)
✅ Drawing a figure that will result in interlocking tessellations (with no gap or overlap)
