Beyond Dominoes

Take away the spots from a domino and you’ll have a rectangle made of two squares. We’ll explore combining this domino shape in many ways and make an art project that shows how dominoes are related to seashells! You’ll combine more than two squares to make tetrominoes (4 squares) and pentominoes (5 squares) and use these shapes to learn about area and parity and solve mathematical jigsaw puzzles. We’ll have a contest to create unique shapes and areas and have prizes for the winners!
