NatureGlo's MathArt curriculum activity guides are a step outside the usual four walls of a classroom and into the great outdoors classroom investigating shapes, patterns and getting students hands dirty as they observe and experience nature's beauty through nature connecting activities. Through outdoor experiences and investigations of nature's patterns, students participate in project based learning with innovative activities, projects and learning center choices. They are free to express their genius in mathematics through arts, crafts, games, plays, photography, video and whatever other media they choose to show their learning.
