Inspired by Pattern Blocks, we’ve created 6 shapes that can be used to make wonderful tessellation patterns. Shapes are: equilateral triangle, rhombus, trapezoid, hexagon, square and small rhombus. Each shape is carefully crafted to match the sides and angles of the other shapes allowing your students to use the shapes to create seamless tessellations or to design animals, people, vehicles, structures and patterns!
Unlike Pattern Blocks, which have specific colors for
specific shapes, our tessellations mosaics come in a range of 12
bright, glossy, double-sided colors. Your students can make
patterns with similar colors or challenge themselves by creating
patterns in different colors. Get students acquainted with the
different shapes and talk about their characteristics by giving each
group a bowlful of the Tessellations Mosaics. Ask students to sort
the mosaics only according to color. They must choose one color and find
all the shapes in that color. Note: Make sure to point out that the
mosaics are double-sided!
Once all the shapes are found, ask students to describe each shape to you.
