Hearts, Hearts, and More Hearts: A Shape We Can Find in Nature

Common Yellow Wood Sorrel

If you have good weather today, go take your child outside and look for hearts!  Hearts actually exist in Nature and are the shapes that will brighten any person’s eyes.  Find hearts in the Cacti, the Jasmine leaves, strawberries, Wood Sorrel, or your potatoes.  The potato is one that my mother found in her bag of potatoes.  It was exciting to have the kids receive this from her. 🙂  Hearts are certainly everywhere.

My children, including myself, have a new tradition of looking for heart rocks, rocks shaped like hearts.  We either keep them to remember our memory together, or give them to each other to show how much we care.  Heart rocks really rock in our family!

 

 

Something to Think About:

When exploring Mathematics in our world, it does not need to be anything formal when we are with our kids.  The purpose is to see, touch, experience, smell, and feel the Mathematics in our world.  Mathematics is everywhere and what better classroom than in the home and outside. 🙂

Remember, it is not about getting to the finish line first, it is about actually getting there.  Whether you are an adult, or a child, it is always a good day to learn the mathematics, especially if it means spending more quality time with your children. 🙂
