Tessellating with Shapes

Tessellating is like shapes and patterns that connect together to make more patterns. They always joins together and leaves no gaps. They are shapes that connect together. Shapes that fit together can be shapes like: diamonds, square, a plus shape, an L shape, a T shape, a pentagon and a hexagon.
Today we went round the whole school to look for connecting shapes that tessellate. We took pictures of shapes around outside the classroom and inside the classroom, by the playground and in the office.
Can you guys find any tessellating shapes at your house or school.

  1. Woah i didn't realise that there are so many tessellating shapes in our school! Maybe you should try find tessellating shapes in your home!
    That would be kind of tricky!
