Geometry Classes Make Tessellations!

Tessellation form Geometry

Mrs. Sklarin’s geometry class enjoyed a break form arithmetic today as they created tessellations.  Tessellations are patterns made from shapes that cover the entire surface without gaps or overlaps.  The students used congruence transformations to move their shapes around to cover the surface of a page.  Students used translations with their crazy squares and rotations with their crazy triangles.  The pattern block station was the biggest hit with the students.  Many wonderful and colorful shapes were created.  We hope you enjoy our photo gallery of our Tessellation Day.
