Measurement in Maths

Posted by mbarrie | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on October 10, 2017

We have been learning the difference between uniform and non uniform units of measurement. Whilst we had lots of fun measuring various items, we decided it was easier and more accurate to measure length, height and width using rulers or tape measures rather than MAB blocks, paddle pop sticks, counters, feet and other non uniform tools.

We Did It!

In Term 3 Inquiry, TEAM 2BC decided to build an igloo shelter so that they could experience working together on a challenge and also what it would be like to live in an igloo in the Antarctic regions of the world!

 

How Did We Make It??  

Get a very large cardboard box and flatten it out to build the igloo on
Measure the floor space of the igloo by using students sitting on the cardboard in a circle
Next draw a very large circle on the cardboard, which will be the base of the igloo
Add a tunnel – shaped entrance at the front of the igloo if you wish
Collect 100’s and 100’s of 2 litre plastic milk cartons which need to be washed out and have the lid on
Join a lot of milk cartons together into blocks of four using masking tape
Glue the first row of milk cartons on the circular line that has been drawn on the cardboard. Make sure the lids of the cartons are all facing into the igloo
Continue to build the circular walls of the igloo by gluing layers of milk cartons on top of each other
After a few layers begin to use single milk cartons so that you can ‘step’ the cartons in a few centimeters every layer
Carefully shape a small part of the igloo roof so that it joins up from one side to another
Support this part of the roof inside the igloo while you strengthen it by continuing to glue cartons around the walls
Make sure that there are no gaps left at the top of the igloo
If you wish to make a ‘snow-like’ floor inside and outside the igloo glue thin layers of polystyrene on to the cardboard base
Crawl into the igloo and enjoy the successful igloo shelter that you have helped to complete!

The students definitely demonstrated that – 

Teamwork + patience + practice = Success and pride in your efforts and those of your team.

What a comfortable and cozy way to come dressed to school! 2BC were on time for school on Friday because they had saved so much time not having to get dressed in the morning!! We even had a bit of fun singing along with some familiar old friends who came down /up the stairs to greet us as we began our day! Thank you for the gold coin donation which will be passed on to St Vincent de Paul to support their work with the homeless.
