This week we are partitioning sets of 8 on butterfly baseboards and learning how to count on from the largest number when adding 2 sets together.
We were given 3 tricky challenges in our group tasks.
- Dominoes. We worked in pairs to find all the doubles. We made a 'doubles' wall' before playing a game. One person closed their eyes while the other took a domino away. We had to work out which domino was missing.
- Bee bots. Everyone made a wand with 5 green and red cubes.. Green meant bee bot should move forwards and red backwards.. Each person programmed a bee bot to move along a flower pathway following the colours on their wand. Some of us were able to predict where bee bot would arrive on the path.
- Weight. We had to compare and order plant pots (filled with different amounts of sand) according to their weight. We the checked it using the balance scales.
