Cool Tessellations: Creative Activities That Make Math & Science Fun for Kids!: Creative Activities That Make Math & Science Fun for Kids!

3 out of 5 stars

This has hands-on activities for the kids.  It has a good explanation of tessellations and where you can find them in nature.  What it needs is better explanations of the geometric shapes.  

It just mentions several different geometric shapes and expects kids to know what they are. (dodecahedron, for example) The activities are good, but some seem repetitive.  

I will probably get this for my classroom because the instructions for the activities are fairly easy to follow. But I still think it could have been done better.
