Perimeter and Measure
The last 2 weeks have seen us looking at perimeter and measure. We have been using standard and non standard units, making estimates and generally having a fun time with lots of practical activities. Trying to measure challenging shapes using string was particularly tricky however finding items that were longer or shorter than a metre wasn't that challenging at all! Some great discussions took place including when noticing that when measuring the perimeter of a shape using pens, if you took the lids off of the pens, your perimeter answer subsequently changed!
