In this lesson the student can either create their own quilt using geometric objects/shapes or use the attached tessellation quilt template.
If using the attached Tessellation Quilt Template review the template with the student.
Have the student identify the different transformations. Give assistance as required
After the student has identified the different transformations, teacher will explain to student that when creating a tessellation they will be creating a repeating pattern utilizing rotations translations and reflections.
Using the cut-out triangles review with the student possible patterns.
Before gluing down the cut-out triangles have the student place the triangles on the Tessellation Quilt Template.
Once the student is satisfied the pattern is repeating as they wish glue the triangles to the Tessellation Qiolt Template.
