I have been trying to think of some nice activities to do during this period of time at home. I thought my year 7 students and my own child might like this activity. I initially made this activity for her to complete and she liked it. I asked her if she could find different ways to complete it and then I thought I’d share it with my year 7 class.
She asked me for some more pentomino tasks for tomorrow so I am creating a few more.
Today my child said to me she wanted to try to make shapes with 3 pentominoes. I thought I’d try this out. The fact she was keen to carry on with these types of problems made me happy. She really loved working them out.
Today we were playing around with a few sets of pentominoes together and seeing which identical shapes could make the same shape as another two identical shapes. This is where this task came from:
Last one for a while…
Ok, that break didn’t last long but I’m just adding the one I had and I hadn’t shared.
A more tricky one…
Wouldn’t this be cool if this could be done online(I mean, I prefer hands-on)? Love it, by the way!
I’m sure someone more technical than me can create that. have the pieces and they can be made to play around with which my daughter liked doing.
A MUST FOR THE CLASS
