“Growing Patterns: Fibonacci Numbers in Nature” by Sarah C. Campbell
I am working with a new book I just got from the librarian at work, who I must mention here because without her I would not have all the amazing books I do to work with. The latest book she dropped off is Growing Patterns: Fibonacci Numbers in Nature by Sarah C. Campbell. It is another book of photographs and explains the Fibonacci numbers through images of flower and other things from nature. This book will work better with my older students the third graders and I already consulted the math specialist at my school to make sure learning about the Fibonacci numbers would be age appropriate.
This book gives a lot of great information but I will probably do some outside research to make sure I have a solid grasp of this math concept. I can’t wait to continue the book exploration in the arts with my students. If I have a book to support my lesson I am always confident it will be a success.
