Spring Challenges for Twilgo

Stage: 2, 3 and 4 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

Here are some star challenges. In each case they are created by rotating repeated shapes. You may find it useful to print off this page for reference, or perhaps so that you can trace over the lines to work out what the unit of repeat is.

Here's another - this time there are stars within a star. Can you work out what the unit of repeat is? 

Is there only one possible answer?
