Tessellation in Google Sketchup

Students in P3 and P4 have been using Google Sketchup to investigate tessellation. After learning how to draw basic 2D shapes they then used tools such as the copy & move and rotation tools to help them to tessellate accurately. They then used the component tool to allow them to replicate patterns within their shapes.

Some students also created 3D solids, including a stellated octahedron. Below is a slideshow of some of our work.
