4th Grade Tessellations

4th grade has been studying tessellations recently. A tessellation is a pattern that fits together perfectly and could go on indefinitely. The artist M.C. Escher is famous for his tessellations and his impossible drawings. Students each created their own tessellations based on Escher's work. Each student came up with an image of a gargoyle to go inside their tessellation pattern. The final tessellation is made of construction paper.
