Celebrate spring with fun shape art and tap into student creativity.
Can use either AllStar or SureCut Dies.
Enable students to explore geometry through art, as they represent animals and common objects with an assortment of shapes. Younger students can tell stories about their pictures. Older students can calculate the total area of each shape in the picture. Students can even create symmetrical images and find the axis of symmetry.
Given geometric shapes, create fun critters and figures to artistically explore math concepts.
Note: This lesson can be created using either Ellison AllStar or SureCut Dies.
Supplies Used: Cardstock, Colored Pens or Pencils, Covered Wire or Thin Yarn, Crayons, Glue, Pipe Cleaners, Pom Poms, Scissors
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
