Geometry Fun through the arts! I have a geometry unit coming up for my 5th graders. I think I will use this idea but include some parameters for my kids. For example, I could require the shapes in the center to be twice the size of the same shapes on the outside - as if looking through a magnifying glass - just to add some more math!
exploring shapes: great maths and art idea--Cut various geometric shapes out and leave them in the art center for painting. As the children become familiar with the shapes, they can cut out their own shapes for painting/ drawing.
