Tessellation Lesson
This Interactive Whiteboard resource allows students to discuss where they see tessellation in real life, practise some tessellations with regular and irregular shapes (including Escher's Reptiles, and attempting pentagons - which won&'t work), and design their own simple tessellation pattern. It includes a possible plenary inviting students to attempt to re-create the tessellation of pentagons and hexagons (as on a football) in 2D, prompting discussion on why this won&';t work.
