Rules of Divisibility Foldable



It's time to learn the Rules of Divisibility as part of our study of factoring!  We combined what we've discovered into a flip book.  The kids are really referring to it frequently...which makes me happy!  I used the last page to emphasize a "Major Math Concept", which you can see in the picture.  I try to drive home the relationship between factors and divisors.  Who else has used this foldable for math?

  1. I'm reviewing factors/multiples/divisibility right now also. My kids are constantly referring to the divisibility bookmark they pasted into their math notebooks. I have not used this foldable but I'm going to pin it for future reference. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This is the coolest thing ever and I can't wait to share it with my fourth graders in a month. How in the world is it made?

  4. Hi, Kate! So glad you stopped by. Try this: take an even number of 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of paper. Lay one down with the short end toward you - lay the next one down so the short end is about an inch or so above the first. Continue this until all are used. Carefully take this and fold it over so each edge is free. Staple at the top. You can cut this in half, also.
    Maybe this quick video will help:

    Scroll down to the clip on making the foldable. Just ignore the writing that she did. Good luck!
