This hands-on visual activity is one where students are able to create a basic shape using modeling clay that utilizes the concept of congruency.  Congruency is the math concept of dividing a shape into equal (matching) parts.  Students will find this project engaging because they are encouraged to use their creativity while being able to work with different materials (not your everyday paper, scissors, and glue project).  This activity is simple and fun!

Step 1: Materials Needed

- Modeling clay (Crayola Air-Dry Modeling Clay)
- Plastic child safe cutting utensils (Kiddi Kutter)
- Food coloring
- Paint (Tempera, acrylic, watercolor, etc.)
- Paint brushes
- Magnets
- Scissors
- Glue
- Ruler
- Pieces of cardboard to work on
- Rubber or latex gloves
- Aprons
Sounds like a fun project :)
