Create Your Own Tessellation Activity (Grade 3)
“Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.”
Mathematics provides us with an ability to reason, identify patterns and solve problems through the application of logic. Math games and activities can give the children’s learning, a boost in many ways and help them engage with numbers from a young age. With the same purpose, our grade 3 facilitators organized a ‘Create your own Tessellation’ activity for students where the pupil were given Jodogyan kits with cut outs of various shapes to form their own tessellating patterns whilst applying their understanding of the concept. They recalled the concept of repetitive patterns. Moreover, they saw a module wherein different tessellations were shown to them. This fun filled activity helped students to recapitulate various mathematical concepts and develop their problem-solving skills.
