This is a fun and creative Geometry project over creating Pure and Semi-pure Tessellations by hand intended for Honors or Pre-Ap Geometry students.
The student selects the tessellation that they will create from the guide provided, from the internet or from their textbook. The tessellation must be made of regular polygons that they will construct themselves with a compass and straightedge. Complete directions and examples are included for both the teacher and the student. Construction directions are also included if needed.
Supplies needed include old file folders or study card stock to make the templates with, construction paper for the tessellation pieces and large paper to glue the pieces onto. This project takes anywhere from 3 to 5 days to complete in class - great for keeping them engaged at the end of the year! Students love this project!
