The Dot and the Line:  a Romance in Lower Mathematics

Visual/Spatial

  1. Typing the letter G: pointer finger left hand

 

 

Items used/needed: any computer keyboard. Ammon and Carter used their iPads with two different Apps.

1)

2)

 

Art: Gauguin : comparing and contrasting European painting vs. Tahitian paintings.

 

Power Point  (less than 6 slides) with Gauguin paintings

 

 

 

Music: explore the music of Gershwin

  2. Watch a video of “An American in Paris”

Bodily/Kinesthetic

  1. Gallop

 

Intrapersonal:

  1. What does it mean to be grateful (discussion)

 

During meal or evening prayers, we would discuss what each of us were grateful for.

 

Interpersonal:

  1. How can you show gratitude to others? (discussion)

 

We stopped often to tell each other “thank you!” and MEAN IT!

 

Nature

 

Plan a garden or plant seeds

 

 

 

In Blooms Taxonomy  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloom’s_Taxonomy) , the pinnacle of the learning pyramid is creativity. My favorite part of the week was when Carter and Ammon CREATED their own “G”ame. We made up rules as we went along, and you and yours can do the same: IT’S YOUR GAME! LOL

 

Cowboys and Indians (Carter and Ammon style)

 

  1. Cowboys and Indians (like a pack for $1 at the Dollar General)
  2. Bottle caps
  3. Line up your men (it can be by color, or Indians vs. Cowboys, rifles against pistols whatever)
  4. Line up your men about 3 ft. apart.  From each side and taking turns, toss your bottle cap at the line of “soldier” so as to knock down the men.
  5. The first contestant to knock down all the figures wins.
