Mother's Day is coming!
Geometry and Art are intertwined. Art is beauty and sharing it feels great. Art = Creativity!
Providing an art connection can be a valuable way to capture a student's attention. Multiple intelligences are now engaged, and a product option lesson is highly beneficial to gifted students. My students LOVE project based learning if they can share it. Moms will love that they are being thought about while in school and this project will be one for the moms to SAVE!
Higher order thinking skills are complex and challenge students by expanding their ordinary lessons into something unique and fun. Projects that are useful and can be shared, showcased, or presented offer a connected-ness with learning and the world in which they live.
Geometry lessons include:
Lines: Parallel lines, perpendicular lines, concentric circles
shapes of any sort
Common core standards included.
Printing and cursive writing can also be included for complexity. Adding some 3-D cutting and folding will offer another level of challenge to your students.
PHOTOS will show you step by step directions, so give it a go!
