What do Diwali and Math Have in Common?

The Grade 1 class has been learning about Diwali the last few days. It fell on October 19th this year. They have been very curious about this bright and beautiful holiday and expressed interest in the gorgeous and intricate designs of rangolis. To tie into our math program, we spoke about the patterns and symmetry that are found within a rangoli and the children used pattern blocks to create their own. This activity was a big hit! The children were focused and engaged while creating their amazing designs. We would like to wish a Happy Diwali to all who celebrate!
