Saxon Math Investigation 12 - Tessellation
this lesson, the students were expected to follow directions in
observing and constructing tesselations. They started by creating
simple regular tessellations out of cutouts, then observed semiregular
and irregular tessellations, and finally created original tessellations
by altering a template, which they applied to a plane. They
finally altered their projects to make their tessallated shape look
like a character or object. The lesson utilized a presentation which I modified, in order to show examples of how artists have used tessellations. |
The Widow's Broom
|In this listening and writing lesson plan, students listened while I read a story and showed the illustrations
for a story in which a broom comes to life and helps its owner.
They students were then instructed to create a similar story in which
everyday objects of their own came to life and helped them.|
