Explore art and geometry with our Dodecagon Hexagon Trapezoid Deluxe Tessellation Pattern Blocks. First explore the shapes separately and then combine the different shapes to discover more complex tessellations. This set includes 2 maple dodecagons, 2 cherry dodecagons, 4 maple hexagons, 4 cherry hexagons, 4 maple right angle trapezoids, 4 cherry right angle trapezoids, 3 maple equilateral triangles, 3 cherry equilateral triangles, 3 maple rhombi, 3 cherry rhombi, 3 maple squares, and 3 cherry squares. For even more fun (and learning!) combine with any of our other Tessellation Pattern Blocks - all have at least one of common length.
This advanced set is for those who already understand that to tessellate means to cover an area without leaving gaps nor overlapping. If children are leaving gaps they would benefit from one of our introductory sets which include a self-correcting base that prohibits leaving gaps. Use with Tessellation Pattern Cards (Coming Soon!) or free-form exploration. They may also be used for picture making or other pattern block activities. It is recommended they be used for tessellations first, and after tessellations have been fully explored and mastered, then they be used for picture making. All pieces are carved from either solid maple or solid cherry. Each is hand-finished with a food-grade beeswax/oil which protects and enhances the natural beauty of the wood. Packaged by hand in 100% recycled material. No adhesives. Ages 3 and up.
