Kepler's Tilings

Young geometers engage in hands-on learning using Zome Models to learn about the repetition of shapes in tilings. Through exploration pupils determine how to build periodic tilings using different polygon shapes. A Zome System Creator Kit or similar modeling tool is needed for this exploration. Tip: Use the lesson as a review of previous concepts on tessellations, reflection, and symmetry.

Lesson Planet allows me to browse through teacher created lesson plans that I can easily adapt to fit with my class materials. I like how I can save plans that I choose so I can go back and find information and resources with ease.
