Salt Dough Tessellation

Get kids excited about science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) with this fun hands-on collaborative project. Typically done during a Family Math Night event, this project can also be done in the classroom. The best part is, each person is individually represented in the final product!

Participants will learn about shapes and tessellations as they create either an equilateral triangle or a rhombus out of salt dough. They will paint their shape which will then be used to create a collaborative tessellation.

    Items included:
  • list of materials needed
  • mathematical background
  • mathematical vocabulary
  • table tent with step-by-step directions
  • templates for the equilateral and rhombus cookie cutters
