STEAM Geometry, Area, Ratios, Hands-on Math COLORADO FLAG DESIGN CHALLENGE

STEAM Geometry, Area, Ratios, Hands-on Math COLORADO FLAG DESIGN CHALLENGE
Product Description
Full STEAM ahead! Here’s a fun and challenging one or two hour math lesson which combines mathematical problem solving, graphic design, following written directions, and an eye for art. It’s all ready-to-print including student handouts, teacher directions, samples, explanations, and an answer key. Use it today with common classroom materials!

Students solve problems about area and ratios to discover the proper measurements for a scaled version of the Colorado state flag and then solve problems relating to angles, radius, and diameter of circles to design the “C” in the middle of the flag wrapped around the golden sun. Finally, students read and interpret kid-friendly blueprints to put it all together into an attractive, accurate Colorado state flag. Along the way they practice with several different measurement and drafting tools.

Independent, small group, or whole class . . . very challenging for advanced 4th grade and 5th grade, and an appropriate project for 6th, 7th, and even 8th graders.

I wrote this for my school’s 4th grade teachers and Colorado history. They’ve used it as a guided by challenging whole class/team puzzle and have created a hallway full of very sharp looking Colorado flags.
