This morning in maths each group had to sort objects from biggest to smallest by
measuring the area of each object.
'Area' means the amount of flat space that an object takes up.
We discovered some interesting ideas as we worked:
You can't compare 2 objects by measuring with different units!
That wouldn't be a fair comparison.
If we choose measuring units that are too small, it takes a lot of counting!
Some of our units overlapped the object we were measuring. That made it tricky to count the number of units used!
But we worked together as teams and overcame the problems.
How does working as a team help us in our learning?
