81 math counters (nine medieval pictures, nine counters each) for hands-on activities, games, picture graphs... Laminate before cutting. Print on sticker paper for stickers or on magnetic paper for magnets.
The history of illuminated manuscripts is explored, and then students are directed to make their own illuminated manuscripts on a suggested topic. The complication level of the project should correspond to student ability and interest.
