Inspired by the book Actual Size, students explored length and perimeter inside and outside the classroom. While undertaking diverse measurement challenges like ranking animals based on height and length, students used various tools (e.g. rulers, meter sticks, tape measures, meter wheels) to enhance their mathematical skills.Ìý
In an engaging outdoor challenge, students partnered up and used meter sticks and meter wheels to measure the length of the school. As the measuring tools were put to use, a revelation unfolded â€” the meter wheels not only exhibited greater accuracy but also proved remarkably user-friendly, surpassing the conventional meter sticks.
The excitement of taking math challenges outdoors added a dynamic twist to the studentsâ€™ learning experience. After completing their measurements, they collaborated to draw detailed pictures showcasing their work. From measuring animals and schools, to mastering the intricacies of meter wheels, the students fully embraced the adventure of math in the great outdoors!Ìý
