## Snag a Super Dot Day Maths Activity for Upper Years

If you’re looking for something new and different to add to your Dot Day lesson lineup, you’re in the right place! We’ve found the perfect combination of Maths and Art to help your students make their mark!

This printable resource includes a fun, challenge-based activity in which students will use their knowledge surrounding diameter, radius, and measurement to create a unique piece of art.  This printable PDF resource file is perfect for getting your upper-year students excited about art, geometry, and International Dot Day!

We know it’s challenging to fit art into the school day, so why not blend the two into your maths block and inspire creativity simultaneously? With resources like this, the Teach Starter team is dedicated to helping you take back some of your time by filling in those lesson plans in a snap!

## Completing the Dot Day Challenge

Students will read the notes about circles and gather their supplies: pencils, coloured pencils, rulers, and a compass. Then, they will follow the steps below to create a one-of-a-kind circle drawing! Some examples of tasks required are

• Draw 3 circles anywhere on the page that have a diameter of 15 cm. Do not let these circles overlap each other. Lightly shade these circles blue.
• Draw 5 circles with a radius of 3 cm. Make each of these circles overlap a piece of one of the circles drawn in step 1. Lightly shade these circles red.
• Draw 4 circles with a diameter of 6 cm that each overlap at least one other circle. They can overlap multiple circles of any size. Lightly shade these circles yellow.
• Draw 6 circles with a radius of 3 cm that do not overlap any other circles. Lightly shade these circles green.
• Draw 10 circles with a diameter of 3 cm that each overlap at least one other circle. They can overlap multiple circles of any size, except the green circles drawn in step 4. Lightly shade these circles purple.
• Colour the background any colour.
