Dot Day | Positive and Negative Space Dots

From: Panther’s Pallet

First grade students are learning about estimation and number illustrations in math. How many ways can you show 100?

We read The Dot by Peter Reynolds. “Vashti even made a dot by not painting a dot.”

We looked up-close at Georges Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte and saw that his painting was made of all dots. The students estimated the amount of dots in that painting (approximately 3,456,000!)
We talked about positive and negative space. Can you make a dot by painting many little dots ? How much space would 100 dots fill?
