My Students

My fourth graders love working on exciting hands-on projects with their friends at school, especially when the projects involve art integration!

These kids are motivated, hard-working, and eager students who really benefit from multi-sensory learning!

They have a special appreciation for nature and are working on a 4th grade garden that will feature native plants and flowers.

Many of these students are English language learners who come from low-income families. They take school very seriously and love to impress adults with how smart and talented they are.

My Project

My fourth grade students will be learning a lot of new and exciting geometry concepts this year! They'll soon be able to draw and name points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. They'll also be learning to identify and describe these features in two-dimensional figures, such as triangles. One of the most challenging concepts in 4th grade geometry is often measuring interior angles and then using that information to classify the shapes.

This project will help my students apply what they're learning about geometry in a hands-on way.

They'll use the Japanese art of ikebana floral arrangement to display many different math concepts such as symmetry, scalene, isosceles, and right triangles, and parallel and intersecting lines. For example, students could use local flowers grown in our school garden to create an ikebana floral arrangement that forms a scalene triangle with the stems!
