For most of my projects, I try to incorporate art in some way. One, because students can relate to at least one type of art form and it’s also a great way to show higher level thinking as they apply what they know by using a way they love to express themselves. One of the activities I plan on using the 3Doodler for will focus on math fact fluency, which is a struggle for most students. This activity blends math and art and can allow students to either work in small groups to practice working with multiples of 2 and 5. Students will organize multiples in a table and use them to create a design based on a repeated set of instructions: UP, RIGHT, DOWN, LEFT. The resulting design will engage students while affording them practice in either skip counting or multiples. In another activity, students will work in small groups to brainstorm and design a city comprised of shapes. Each 2D shape will be assembled to create the city's houses, buildings, towers and bridges. During the design phase of the project, students will draft shapes on graph paper to use as stencils for the 3Doodling phase of this project. This real-world, hands-on project combines math, problem solving, collaboration and technology.
