Create Pentomino sets for the class.
Can use either AllStar or SureCut Dies.
Play with pentomino puzzles by tiling a rectangular box with pentominoes. Since there are 12 pentomino pieces, each with an area of 5 unit squares, the rectangle should have an area of 60 units. Therefore, consider creating 6" x 10", 5" x 12", 4" x 15" and 3" x 20" rectangles based on student ability. Cover each rectangle with the pieces without any overlap or gaps.
