Six Squares


  • No Comments

Contributed By


In this activity, learners take a turn contributing a closed figure made of six squares to a large grid; each must be different from all the others on the grid so far. As everyone adds their shapes, they consider reflections and rotations. This activity works well as a display in a public area such as a library or museum; it can also be done as a whole group activity. Available as a web page and downloadable pdf.
