Two weeks ago, I found the remains of a beehive in my backyard. Much of it had already blown away. My family and I were intrigued by this piece that remained. It consisted of many, many hexagonal cavities. Each haxagon was perfectly formed. I put it in a large plastic baggie. Labeled it Math In Nature and brought it to school. Many of my 4th, 5th,and 6th grade students recognized it as a piece of a beehive, but none had ever taken the time to really look at it. We began to talk about tessellations and math in nature. Each child has been asked to bring in one picture or idea that represents some form of math found in nature. We plan to use these findings for our side bulletin board. We are also planning to use pattern blocks to create our own tessellations.
