I am looking for math art project ideas for my SPED students. Although they are high school student, my students work at a 2nd to 4th grade level. I would appreciate any and all ideas. Thanks!

How about tessellations? They can be very simple or complex...very adaptable. I've seen them in high schools and in 5th grade classrooms just at different levels.

Around Halloween I have my students create a haunted house with math facts as the focus. Since I teach 4th grad my students use multiplication. Students are assigned a number 2-12 and on the door of the house they write House of ___, then on each window they write the math fact (i.e. 2 x 4) with a pop up window effect and the answer under neath. Then they can decorate the remaining space with ghosts, spider webs, etc.

Do you have any pics of the ghost house? It seems like a fun thing for the kids to do.

We make butterflies for symmetry.

Illustrations for word problems.

3-d shapes are fun. I have the kids decorate the printables with interdisciplinary themes.

For measurement: I roll out gift wrap, and use the back. The kids partner up and trace each other on the paper. Color them, cut them out, and then use for measurement. You can measure your body parts, and you can also use them to measure something like the playground. "How many kids long is the playground?"

Google glyphs. I made some last year with 4th-6th graders at Halloween and Christmas. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures. You will see a lot of neet stuff online though.
