Tessellating Talent

As promised, here is the Tessellation art we've been working on for the last two days. It was a lot of work and required us to really pay attention to what we were doing, but it was worth it. We think they look fantastic!
To make your own tessellating shape, follow the steps in these pictures.

Day 3 of our marshmallow challenge went well. Two groups had standing towers at the end of the twenty minutes. Caitlin, Jake and Alex built one 25cm tall and Joel, Lachlan and Taj made one 18cm high. Some other groups managed to make some great towers, but they fell over before the time limit was up, which means we couldn't measure them! What a shame! Tomorrow, we're going to start experimenting with making frames to see if that will help us make higher structures.
