I would like you to go on a hunt around your house and in the garden for tessellations.

Draw out the table below into your books and fill in each column.

 

Where did I find the tessellation? What material has been used to make the tessellation? What shape/s have been used?
e.g. Bathroom  Tiles Squares and Diamonds 
     
     
     

 

Remember to look very carefully in and outside of your home. You may spot tessellations that you have never noticed before!

 

Happy hunting!! laugh
