This interdisciplinary Math-Social Studies-Art project is the perfect way to get your students learning about communities while applying the concept of multiplication arrays to their artwork.

Throughout this four lesson mini-unit of study (in which actual lesson plans are included), the students will learn about three basic types of communities -- Urban, Suburban, and Rural. They will create an interactive notebook page and anchor chart detailing the communities. The students will draw their own three-part community in a directed drawing "one-point perspective" lesson. Adding buildings to their community drawing will involve the creation of multiplication arrays with basic multiplication facts. Finally, the students will create a step book to share the mathematics behind their arrays.

This mini-unit is a great way to hit many different standards across the curriculum AND have a wonderful display of student work. A grading rubric (on a 4 point scale) is included to help you assess the final products your students create.
