Product Description
Learn about vertical, horizontal, and intersecting lines as racetracks for Edgar Degas’ horses! We combine one of Edgar Degas’ favorite subjects--horses--and geometry to construct this highly differentiated activity! This connects directly to the Think Math! program, and can also be used to supplement any geometry unit in other programs.

This activity is part of an Edgar Degas Artist Study, which is a portion of our complete Artist Biography Unit.
