Subject: tessellations and symmetry -- 4th grade

	
Hi, I have enjoyed reading your discussion and want to recommend a
relevant chapter of an excellent book, "Creative Mathematics:
Exploring Children's Understanding" by Rena Upitis, Eileen Phillips
and William Higginson.  Chapter 2, "Tessellations," offers some
wonderful ideas for lessons with ceramic tiles, dot grids, tesselating
patterns on silk cards, and inventing notations for tesselating
patterns -- all appropriate for 3-4 grades and adaptable up and down. 
The book was published in 1997 by Routledge.

Best wishes,
Christina
