tessallations and polygons
posted by Trisha .
I am a student teacher and I wanted to teach a grade 5 class a lesson on tessallations; however, I am not sure what group activity to incorporate into my lesson to help them better understand what tessallations are. For my motivation or focusing event, I was going to read the book, A cloak for the dreamer" its a good book that will introduce the concept to the students. DO you have any idea what kinds of activities I could do with the students to help them understand the concept of tessallations?
you should read them the book, then let them do a craft to make like a tile from construction paper. maybe something like that.
