Spring is here and your garden is beginning to bloom!
Take your pick... There are roses, daisies and tulips (oh my)! Some stems have 1 leaf, some have 2 leaves, and others none. Place the flower in a pot, in a vase or wrap it up.
Your kids will have a blast arranging and re-arranging 9 different "Build-a-Flower" cards to make up to 27 beautifully unique floral creations.
Invite them to use the recording sheet (with easy-to-draw "flower symbols") to keep track of all their "Algebraic Arrangements!" Can you create all 27 possibilities?
This activity is perfect for helping students develop problem-solving strategies, logical thinking skills and perseverance. It's a fun way to review the concept of probability and it's also great as a team-building, collaborative activity!
Materials are available in color and B&W.
