Tessellations: Art and Math Teachers coming together
Last week was exploration week for the theme based around the Adventure Science Museum trip. Leslie Franklin the math teacher and I collaborated to teach the students about pattern and tessellations.
First we watched a video on how to create tessellations from crystal. This video was really well done and broke it down really well for the students.
Some of the students did a really great job with this assignment. Others didn't do so great. This is a difficult lesson to do with students with special needs, but you sometimes don't know what they are capable of until they try.
