Magnifying glass in hand, we darted to the backyard to observe a caterpillar turn upside-down and spin a chrysalis. One child drew the pattern of the magnificent stripes. Another fashioned it from clay. The third child took photographs to make a photo journal documenting the changes and the times they occurred. Together, we identified the caterpillar and discussed how this captivating creature would change into something new—a glorious eastern black swallowtail butterfly with symmetrical black and yellow wings!

Presenting math concepts in the wonder of the outdoors provides a strong and meaningful foundation for children. Leaves to be sorted and compared amid fall breezes. Shells to be counted, added and identified, their patterns replicated in sketches. Oh, and the observation and measurement opportunities on a pond shore? Simply captivating! Nature and math go hand-in-hand. God designed it that way!

Math Adventures: Experiencing Math in Nature provides math lessons with uniquely designed activities essential to a child’s early learning: narration, hands-on experiences, oral drill, and life application. Lessons ask children to classify, describe, compare, group, count, add, subtract, and divide the objects they love: pine cones, rocks, sticks, acorns, and more. A multi-sensory program, MathAdventures builds on a child’s instinctive ability to recognize shape, size, pattern and quantity, giving opportunities to observe, make, do, and verbalize math processes while solving problems and building math vocabulary with concrete, naturally fascinating wonders.

With you on your next math adventure,
