Week 5 Numeracy – Length


Posted by misscarey | Posted in Numeracy | Posted on 14/05/2015

This week we were learning about length. A lot of the activities were very hands on and involved the children choosing materials to measure with. Some of the things we used to measure were: unifix, tens and rulers.

The students began the unit talking about the language we use when we are describing the length of something. They then had to find something that was shorter, longer and the same length as their hand.

The following day students were challenged to make estimates about how long something was. We spoke a lot about how it is ok to make mistakes and how our estimates become more accurate the more we do it.

Here are some pictures of the way that they recorded their estimates and findings in their maths books.
