Product Description

This Golden Spiral themed math activity is a nice all about me activity to get to know your students when they come back to school.

There are 7 printable versions and 1 drag-and-drop digital version in the file. The digital version was an update to help with distance learning. For the printable versions, there are also student directions to turn 2 of the pennants into glyphs (favorite class, number of siblings, etc.). For the digital version, students drag and drop the different colored shapes based on their answers to the glyph questions. You can see this version in the video preview. The digital version is in GOOGLE Slides.

The Golden Spiral is a super cool and fun way to introduce Math to any age group. Each box in the spiral has an area of a number in the Fibonacci Sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34). Each larger number in the sequence is produced from the sum of the 2 previous numbers! Cool!

Some pennants ask students to fill in information about themselves (name, birthday, favorite color, favorite class), some have numbers of the Fibonacci Sequence within the Spiral, and others are more open-ended for coloring or adding what you'd like to see on the pennants. Once a pennant is complete it can be hung on a string in your classroom as Math-themed classroom decor.

Pennants are a great way to decorate before Back to School night in the fall or to keep students focused before a holiday. Pennants with information boxes are a great way to get to know your students and for them to get to know each other.
