Tilings with Quadrilaterals

By building a tiling with the Zome System, teams of young geometers determine whether different quadrilaterals will tile or not. Tip: A similar lesson can be designed using paper and scissors. This could also serve as an introduction to tessellations.

Lesson Planet has really helped me with not going "bonkers" over trying to find innovative and fun activities to incorporate into my daily lessons. Kids, even highschoolers whom I teach, don't want to have lectures all the way through each class period, so having activities that are fun can make students more involved which helps them learn the concept of whatever topic I'm teaching.
