Starting assignment young students

Young students start with a simple assignment where the rules are quickly discovered. This two-layer muqarnas follows the rule "back on front". Students are handed over a construction plate for a quick start. This worksheet is part of my geogebra book on Muqarnas. More information is available on my website Muqarnas/Starter.
