How to Make an Escher-esque tessellation

In this video, we learn how to make an Escher-esque tessellation. Start with construction paper, then make an equilateral triangle onto it. Next, make a shape on one end of the triangle, making any shape you would like. Now cut your shape out, then trace it onto another piece of construction paper. After this, rotate the shape over on the second piece of paper, then trace it out again. The lines should match up equally. You will then have one side left, which you will use to make any shape you would like. Now, cut this shape out. Trace this back onto an other piece of construction paper doing the same steps again. Now, use your shapes to trace onto paper and draw different pictures and characters into them. When finished, enjoy your picture! This mixes math and art and is a fun project for kids!
