I would like you to go on a hunt around your house and in the garden for tessellations.

Draw out the table below into your books and fill in each column.

Where did I find the tessellation? |
What material has been used to make the tessellation? | What shape/s have been used? |
---|---|---|

e.g. Bathroom | Tiles | Squares and Diamonds |

Remember to look very carefully in and outside of your home. You may spot tessellations that you have never noticed before!

Happy hunting!!
