Fill your students’ minds with knowledge of geometry, area, perimeter, art history, and color, all with one lesson. Students are given the opportunity to create their own Mondrian inspired art piece, while practicing their area and perimeter skills.
Take it a step beyond just the math and teach a mini art history lesson around Piet Mondrian. He was a painter that made quite the change from where he began to his most popular works later in his career.
Included are: grid paper to lay out artwork, sample artwork with visible grid, sample artwork with information on area and perimeter of particular rectangles, sample artwork with no grid, and a few web-based resources to supplement the lesson.
