RATIOS: Project based learning with ratios
Ratios with Mondrian is a set of four activities for students to explore ratio using student-created Mondrian-Inspired designs. A great addition to your 6th grade study of ratios.

Students are introduced to the artwork of Piet Mondrian and then create their own Mondrian style artwork which they use as the basis for exploring ratio. Students use their artwork to calculate the ratio of different colors to each other. Students work on a small scale with their own artwork and then apply their knowledge of ratio to a large class art piece.

This set of activities is available at a savings as part of a longer-term project on scale, ratio, area and perimeter with Mondrian.
