Tessellations

The second graders are working on creating tessellations.  After learning about planes and adjacent vertices, they drew and cut-out their own stencils to make tessellations.  They have learned to determine which polygons will make tessellation and which will lead to gaps and overlaps!  Next, they will be investigating three-dimensional shapes, surface area, and volume!
