Students created flowers inspired by the Fabric Designer Anna Maria Horner. 1st, they used painted paper and created a circle- circumference with 8 pieces of paper. They laid their pieces out in alternating colors and added a crescent shape to complete the flower. Lastly, they added pom-pons to the center and matted it to another sheet of construction paper.
What a beautiful lesson with math connections of circumference, diameter and radius to make it complete! The 5th grade teachers love that I cover this every year! 🙂
