This morning we were finding out about the trees in our playground.
We measured the height of trees with our clinometers.
We measured the circumferences of the trees and used a webpage to estimate how old the trees were.
We took photos of the trees, their leaves, bark and fruit.
Skills: maths skills: measuring, calculation to find out the heights. Team work. Taking pictures. Web browsing.
We learned how to multiply on an abacus with 1 and 2 digit numbers. We watched a video online and practised until we figured out how to do it. After we told the class how to do it then we went round some maths groups. Then planned our own video explaining how to multiply with 1 and 2 digit numbers.
