Room 11 have been learning about Tessellations for Maths and Art.  We learnt the following information about Tessellations.

A Tessellation is when you cover a surface with a pattern of flat congruent shapes so that there are no overlaps or gaps.

You will complete several different types of tessellations during this project. The following are some basic guidelines for producing quality tessellated compositions.

    Tessellated shape should follow a pattern on your paper. (slide, flip, or rotate)
   No gaps
   No overlaps
   No empty spaces
   Shapes should go off the edge of the paper.
   Outline shapes in marker
   Colour inside with color pencil.
   Colour in one direction.
Colour using a light/dark pattern.

We have been learning how to create a tessellating pattern.  Here are some of our creations so far. Next week were going to make Pacific Island patterns that tessellate to make a tapa cloth.  The following week, tukutuku panels.  Stay tuned for which art work we choose to use for our calendar art.
