Teaching STEM in the Great Outdoors: Symmetry Scavenger Hunt

Teaching STEM in the Great Outdoors: Symmetry Scavenger Hunt

For younger students, building real-world connections to math is key to paving the way towards continued future math interests as each learner develops! So, how do you build these lifelong math connections?

The answer is simple. Take a walk. In nature, everywhere you look, you can find math. You just need to know how to look for it!

One of the hardest things for students in a math classroom to do is apply what they’re learning to real-world situations. From proofs to Pythagorion, finding applications for math outside of the classroom is not only difficult, but it’s an incredibly important step in establishing student understanding as to why math is pivotal to a well-rounded education. Which is exactly why we’ve developed the Symmetry Scavenger Hunt! Are you ready to get your students learning through hands-on exploration?
