Tessellations

Here is a quick way to create a file.  We were working with tessellations. 

tesselations

(Tessellation is the process of creating a two-dimensional plane using the repetition of a geometric shape with no overlaps and no gaps.)

Three coloured shapes were added to the SMART Board and infinitely cloned.  The students had to make patterns with no overlaps and no gaps.  Everyones had to look different.  Afterwards we viewed quilts to see various kinds of tessellations and then we visited MC Escher’s website to see his fantasy artwork.  (http://www.mcescher.com/Biography/biography.htm)

Happy Learning!
