## Reflection: Joy Bunnies, Bunnies, Bunnies: A quick lesson in exploring the Fibonacci Sequence - Section 4: Practicing Patterns

I really enjoyed today... I needed a break! We had been working so hard on division all week and I was exhausted. I looked for something joy filled to teach today...wonderous...and found it!

I also found this little article I could have used for my higher end students to read. It talks about the sand dollar and 5 in nature. If I would add to this lesson, it would be more reading and research about mathematical patterns in nature. This page from Math is Fun is a good little resource too!  I comment on the joy this lesson brought in this clip. Good Old Fib..mov

Joy: It's Everywhere!
