We have been learning about Shape. Today, we focused on tessellation.
We tessellated shapes in a puzzle.
We tesselated shapes and them used the panel to find rotational symmetry.

History of the tangram puzzle. Tangram puzzles originated in Imperial China during the Tang Dynasty, they are thought to have travelled to Europe in the 19th century on trading ships. Tangram puzzles were popular during World War 1 and have become the most popular dissection puzzle in the world.
It was quite tricky to make the fish if you didn't put the shape in exactly the right place... then the others wouldn't connect properly.

We tessellated shapes on each side, using a ruler to show the line of symmetry.
