To begin our project, we formed a rectangle. Next, we divided the rectangle and placed the left side on the right side. Then we divided the top part of the rectangle and placed it on the bottom. We chose to color our tessellation and place circular shapes inside of it.

Our tessellation is called Seasons because when it is looked at straight on, it looks like snow falling. When looked at sideways, it looks like flames, which can represent the heat of the summer.
