The Making of a Star Blanket
Author: Katherine Pettipas, Leo Pettipas
The Making of a Star Blanket provides an opportunity for students to work with paper and colour, while integrating concepts of numbers into the learning and teaching process. The hands-on experience of folding the paper into different shapes, patterns and designs, adding colour, and coordinating all of this is an excellent strategy to motivate students to learn math. Being able to visualize different concepts of math before engaging in the actual activity of making a star blanket is a helpful learning experience.
