Measuring ourselves and toys… Fun with maths
Category : Grade 1 & 2's
Have you ever tried to measure yourself or a toy without using rulers?
That was the challenge our students had to think about…
Amidst the the fun and laughs, our students chose a unit of measure like counters and blocks, estimated how many they would need to measure themselves, then worked together co-operatively to find an accurate measure.
Finally, our students had to make a home for a toy… some made a hanger for an aeroplane, others a garage for a truck and some a bedroom for a very sleepy animal toy.
