Picasso and Pythagorus: What a Team!

My students need a large box of markers, a large box of colored pencils, and a large carton of construction paper.

Calling all markers, colored pencils, and construction paper! Help me make seventh-grade math more interesting and engaging. Math and art are incredibly related but difficult to connect. My school emphasizes the importance of art by participating in a yearly student gallery showing. Unfortunately, although integrating art into other subject areas in encouraged, we don't always have the supplies to make it happen. I am requesting art supplies for my seventh-grade math classroom in order to continue making the math-art connection. Math-art activities peak the interest in students who in other ways feel turned off by math. By illustrating geometric shapes, adding color to their graphs and charts, making tessellations, and putting patterns down in colorful form on paper, these students make math come to life. Unfortunately, supplies at my school are scarce and hard to access. I am asking for your help in donating art supplies so that this scarcity does not hinder my students' learning. I would like to request one class set of markers, one class set of colored pencils, and one class set of construction paper to make a class art set to share with my three classes of seventh-grade math students. I know that it seems a privilege to have art supplies in a mathematics classroom, but I have seen the amazing way that math can enrich and stimulate mathematical minds. Please help my students get the most out of their year in my seventh-grade math class by donating this class set of art supplies.
