Get kids excited about math with this fun hands-on collaborative project. Typically done during a Family Math Night event, this project can also be done in the classroom. The best part is, each person is individually represented in the final product!
This fun project is a great way to reinforce beginning concepts in fractions. Participants will be cutting different colored squares into triangles and using those triangles to design their quilt square. Some of the math they'll discover along the way are halves, unit fractions and equivalent fractions.
