Students need ample practice with math problems. But many times math problems do not hold a student's interest. And often times students miss out on other content areas, because we are busy making sure they get enough practice with the core subjects.
This activity is designed to integrate math practice with other often overlooked content areas -- social studies and art. Students who do not usually enjoy math, will be motivated to complete this activity in order to draw and color the picture of the desert scene. Although they follow the directions to complete the picture, each will come out delightfully unique.
This activity is great for review days, homework assignments, or substitute lesson plans. A quick look at the finished product will let you know whether or not the student was successful.
Mastering the Common Core elementary math standards is essential to future success in higher level mathematical concepts. This standard based activity is designed to reinforce these important skills in a fun and motivating way.
Included in this download is the the math activity and the background, for students to draw their picture on. Also included are answer keys and a sample finished drawing.
