Tiling the Plaza (Geometry)

Students make patterns with a variety of pattern blocks. Pupils experiment with making tile designs using only one shape by rotating that shape around a point. They enter a contest for creating the best tile design for the new plaza using the geometric shapes. Students work in groups and use only the blocks with equal sides and equal angles to create a patterned tile design.
