I can suggest an easy tessellation lesson that I developed.
Judy put it on her web site:
She has others on the site too - you didn't say what level you were
teaching it for.
Mine was designed for seventh grade. I did a multi color linoleum
lesson based on it once with a select group of eight graders once. It
complex and I'd never suggest it be tried by a first year teacher.
Below is a link
to a page showing teachers in my tessellation workshop in 2007:
Whatever you do - work through the lesson yourself first.
Best of Luck, Woody
I saw the e-mail asking if the list was down - I suspect that many
Spring breaks or watching basketball. The season is over for me since
my Jayhawks lost.
