Very busy this week with students – for their Inquiry action – preparing their models or proto-type inventions. Some students have made theirs at home – some at school and some half and half – either way it is all action and what is fascinating has been all the discussion and planning behind them.
This week we have been investigating Measurement using a range of tools.
The students were placed in groups and had to decide/collaborate around how they would perform these tasks using either a trundle wheel, metre ruler, M.A.B.long , handspan or even a footstep. Here is a brief look and soon we will publish the student’s findings.
Interesting. Some teams worked on each task together and others split into pairs or worked individually. Overall a great activity – Stay tuned.
Bridie: I thought it was really fun becuase you got to use different tools.
Cooper – I thought it was much better being in a team because if you got stuck you could ask someone for help.
Jenny – I though it was really good becuase we all worked well together.
Will- I thought it was good ideas to be in teams so we could all like work together – with our own task – and not wait around.
