Math Project: 5th and 6th Grade Math and Art Project Bundle
is an entire bundle of fantastic 5th and 6th grade math projects that are perfect for working on topics such as ratio, area, area of circles, and more ($24 VALUE). All the projects use artists and art concepts to engage students. Learning math was never so fun. Your 5th and 6th graders will love this!
This bundle includes:
- Circles, Area, and Circumference with Kandinsky
- Playing with Polygons and Symmetry
- Ratio, Area, and Perimeter through Mondrian
- Rational and Irrational numbers: 3 kinesthetic activities
- Geometry with Frank Stella
Over 4 weeks of projects primarily 5th and 6th grade concepts to integrate throughout your math year and all common core aligned as well. Use whole class, with individuals, or at math centers. Each of these lessons are available individually as well. Perfect for differentiation with your gifted 4th grade students, too!
-Students will describe relationships of inscribed circles.
- Students will know the formulas for area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems. (CCSS.MATH, 7.G.B.4.)
- Students will solve mathematical problems involving area of 2-dimensional objects composed of quadrilaterals and triangles.
- Students will classify 2-d drawings as polygons or not polygons. (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.G.A.2)
- Students will recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure and draw lines of symmetry (CCSS.MATH.4.G.A.3.)
- Students will understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. (5.GB.3.)
- Students will write about their explorations with polygons and symmetry.
- Students will understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe the ratio relationship between two quantities (CCSS.MATH.RP.A)
- Students will recognize and represent rational relationships between quantities (CCSS.MATH.RP.A.)
- Students will apply area and perimeter formulas to real world and mathematical problems (CCSS.MATH.MD.A.)
- Students will explore rational relationships through multiple activities.
- Students will develop a symbolic representation code.
- Students will identify the properties of irrational numbers (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.NS.A.1)
- Students will apply the properties of irrational and rational numbers visually.
- Students will identify key themes in Frank Stella’s artwork.
- Students will apply the knowledge of key themes to their own art creation.
- Students will become familiar with geometric tools including protractors, rulers and triangles.
