Do you use geoboards? They are such a fun math tool that you can use for many ages of learners. We have been having fun with ours lately creating some seasonal patterns. Today I have a set of Autumn Geoboard Pattern Cards for you to print & use in your own lessons!
What is a Geoboard?
A geoboard is typically a square board with pegs or nails in it used to teach math concepts. You can find them with 9, 16, or 25 pegs (rows of 3, 4, or 5) Geoboards are great for teaching about geometry, such as area and perimeter. It is also great for teaching shapes. You use rubber bands and stretch them around the pegs to create shapes, angles and pictures.
Where to Buy a Geoboard
You can purchase a geoboard online or at school supply stores. We found ours on Amazon. They often come with rubber bands, but any pack of a rubber bands will work if they are a variety of sizes.
We have some a 9 inch plastic geoboard as well as some smaller 9 inch plastic ones. The double sided one has a circular geoboard on the back side. It’s pretty cool! I also love the look of the wooden ones.
Autumn Geoboard Pattern Cards
This set of autumn themed cards includes 14 pictures for Halloween, Thanksgiving and other fall-themed things for the season.
Pictures included in this autumn geoboard set are:
- Bowl of Soup
It also includes 2 blank geoboard images for kids to create their own shapes!
Each card includes the following:
The name of the image, the image, the name of the image to trace, and two questions. How many rubber bands did you use? How many squares does your picture cover?
This helps make the geoboard cards a bit harder for older kids. Counting the number of squares could also lead into an introduction on area and perimeter.
