Making real-life connections to math is important. It shows children that there really is a purpose to the work we give them and that math is everywhere. It shows them that math matters and it might not be quite as hard as it can seem sometimes.
Making cross-curricular connections is important, too. Anytime you connect one subject to another, it builds a depth to understanding that becomes a firm foundation. I’m sure you’ve heard of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) education? This curriculum hits 4/5 of those components pretty hard!
With all of those goals in mind, Math in Nature: Shapes and Patterns was written for 1st-8th grade students and can be used with multiple ages, interests, abilities, and learning styles all at once.
Your students are going to love it!
Note: If you only have younger students at the moment, you may decide to leave the last couple of lessons since they dig a little deep in mathematical concepts.
