Measurement Madness

On Mondays and Fridays, we do our maths strand investigations (and numeracy on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.) At the moment, we are in the Measurement Strand, inquiring into measuring shapes. 

Today we found this challenge on the white board for us. 




We helped ourselves to measuring tools and chalk and began to draw shapes on the carpet. 


It was quite amazing to see how many different shapes we could create which had the same area. 


We ended up with a very dusty classroom but the floor looked pretty amazing! 

It'll be fun when we need to create circles on the carpet!
