Fifth graders learned about the artist M.C. Escher and tessellations.  This was a great art & math connection.  We used the translation, rotation and transformation (slide, turn, flip) techniques, which are also 5th grade Math SOL's.  Tessellations are created by making a repeated pattern and shape, and then fitting those pieces together like a puzzle.
