Terrific Tesselations



Did you know that tesselations are a part of the Montessori cirriculum...
falling somewhere between sensorial and geometry;or maybe better
stated a sensorial application of geometric shapes? MWEI has
a nice webpage and illustrations here:

A video presentation is here:

Jeff at Young Minds at play has made a beautiful set of wooden
shapes in trays following this idea which you can find here:
