Confident Individuals – Construction Numeracy Skills

The Transition boys were Confident Individuals this week when planning the end of their greenhouse build. The roof needs to be completed but we are low on materials. The boys successfully measured the length of each cane to make sure we could get the correct ones. They counted rows on the back of the greenhouse to calculate how many canes would be needed for the roof. Finally they counted the number of bottles in each row to work out how many bottles we would need. 33 rows with 10 bottles on each equals 330 bottles! We also took the opportunity to neaten up the top of the canes and tidy up.
