Why do this problem?
will give learners the opportunity to become acquainted with less familiar two dimensional shapes. This is an accessible activity at which all children could have a go.
What shapes can you see?
Can you see another one which is a different size?
If you make these touching shapes the same colour, what shape have you made?
Learners could create their own tessellations using this template.
The interactivity will be useful for children who don't like making mistakes and those who find colouring difficult.
