Math : Squares : Tumbling Blocks

\We are using this book called Shapes in Math, Science and Nature.  It has short lessons and projects and games that we are enjoying.


This day we did tumbling blocks, which that Lucas asked to make because it’s a pattern very similar to the box of a game they play.  It was pretty fun.IMG_1262

Then they used it to make a diamond shape and as a pattern to cut more for the final design. IMG_1275




It was a fun project.
