For week 52 of 52 Weeks of Hands-On Math, I couldn’t resist a play on words: Math rocks! This week I encourage learners to share their math in the neighborhood. Create sidewalk chalk art with Fibonacci hopscotch, paint a math rock garden, make a math obstacle course by your home, or have a piece of outside artwork to share.
Our family created a math rock garden. Rocks are often painted, traded, and shared in our area. We may still do another epic hopscotch course before the summer is over. Math rocks, so let’s share it with our world.
Acrylic non-toxic paint pens were used with these rocks, but we have used watercolors, markers, and ink on rocks in the past.
