I love love LOVE this idea! However, quick question - you say you have kids that come back year after year to see if their tiles are still up. How do you have space for them all?
Thanks for sharing this! I cannot wait to try it with my class. :-)
Actually, the classroom I was in in Florida was gigantic...so no worries for filling the ceiling with tessellations for about 8 years. The classroom I am in now will probably fill in another year or two. Maybe have the students work on tiles in pairs or groups of 3 or 4?!
All the best1
