Math Art Project Ideas + Free Fraction Art Project

As we’re getting towards the end of the year, I’m getting creative with math art projects.  The kids are over the boring workbook pages and strangely, there are actually not enough lessons to cover the entire school year in our program!  {Anyone else have that problem?}

For the last month or so of school, I try to incorporate a lot more games and art into Math to make it more exciting!

Fraction Friends is one of my favorite projects!

How cute are these Fraction Friends? This simple fraction art project helps elementary students gain a deeper understanding of fractions.

To prep, I just cut up a ton of colors and stored them in cups for easy clean-up! I used 1.5-inch squares, but any size will do!

Before gluing, the students had to lay out their picture first {or disasters can happen!}

Once they glued all their pieces, they counted up the total number used and broke it down into colors for their fractions! I love the uniqueness of each person!

I’ve found using art as part of teaching math to truly help young students more fully understand the topics and skills.

Plus, they love having a fun art project to share!

  1. This is such a lame thing to say, but I've been struggling with an autoimmune disease and am just really looking forward to the relaxed schedule and getting my body/health back in balance so I can gear up for a new year. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I am very excited to have the time to read a whole stack of books just for fun and personal enjoyment since I didn't have time to read them during the school year!

  3. I am most excited about going to my sons' baseball games and playing with our new puppies! I also am pretty excited about not having to be up at 5:30!!

  4. This summer I am most excited about having time to sew and (trying…again) to learn to play the guitar. It can be hard to find that much extra time during the school year, but I am looking forward to the time off to reconnect with hobbies.

    …and Mojitos. Who am I trying to kid? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Fraction friends is an amazing idea – will definitely be trying this out and making a great fractions display. Thanks for sharing!
