Draw an Odd Numbered Creature

Draw Plus Math by Freddie Levin arrived in my mailbox recently and I couldn’t wait to share it with you!

It’s a step by step guide to math related drawing. For example, in one lesson, you’ll learn the steps of drawing a car.  Then, you’re asked to make a math sentence using cars and shown how to draw three cars minus one car equals two cars. 3-1=2.

Other lessons are: draw a robot, draw circle, oval and rectangle bugs then sort, draw a quilt block, draw things around us that have numbers like a clock or cell phone, & draw a tree with birds facing west and birds facing east then use the information to create a graph.

Click on the book cover or the following link to print out two fun drawing pages from this book.  These are instructions to “Draw an Odd Creature.” draw+math_print _medres
