MathArts-Exploring Math Through Art for 3 to 6 Year Olds
Math doesn't have to be dry and boring; bring an element of creativity to the math experience with MathArts. Children will learn concepts like shape recognition, patterns, beginning fractions, graphing, and more with the 100+ art activities found in this book. Each activity is labeled with the appropriate age and degree of preparation (easy, moderate, involved) and includes a list of materials, the process, and variations on the project. A master materials list is found in the front of the book and uses things that are easily accessible. Explore spatial relationships with a weaving project, make a stretchy pattern board for counting, and discover number values using a cookie graph.
