    I think this is a great way to incorporate literature, art, and math all into one lesson. Not to mention, it's a great hands on activity and a lot of fun!

In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students participate in activities in which they focus on connections between mathematics and children's literature. They listen to the poem "Shapes" from Shel Silverstein's "A Light in the Attic" and then recognize, draw, and describe geometric figures.
