Math activities with Q-tips

These multi-purpose bathroom essential items can be used for math too!

  • Make geometric shapes with Q-tips.  How many do you need to make your shape really neat?  If you have hot glue you might be able to make 3D geometric shapes too!
  • If you make a shape such as the one above--count how many triangles are there.  The one with 9 squares is neat too.
  • Lots of geometry can be taught with Q-tips.  If you make the above shape you can find the area of the the triangle.  I love making hexagons and octagons too.  Can your student find out how to make them?
    • You can teach line segments, rays, lines, parallel, acute angles, obtuse angles and more using Q-tips!
What other math activities can you think of with Q-tips?
