Christmas Tree Tessellation

Math and art come together. A tessellation is a shape that can be repeated over and over in a pattern with no space in between.

Start with print out the template.

It’s easier to color the trees before you cut them out. I glued on all our trees on poster board in the tessellating pattern. (Kids can totally do this themselves – it just may not line up quite as nicely as mine!)

When you glue them down, let the black lines overlap between trees.

It’s easier to glue down your trees if you draw a straight line as a guide.

If you feel for a collaborative project, make a big Christmas tree out of all the small ones. My Christmas tree below is made out of 64 small ones. That will make a tree of approximately 80 cm height.
