At Term 4, Week 9, we aimed to keep the children as motivated as we can - so we did LEGO maths all week!
We started with the Design Brief that Legoland was looking for a new attraction and we needed to build one. So they designed an attraction, then either made it or used BlockCad to build the attraction. This took a couple of days!
After they designed their attraction, they worked out the surface area, perimeter and volume of the attraction. (The builders of Legoland needed to know how much space it would take up!). Then children made a poster with a photo and their information, although I forgot to take a picture!
Another day we found something in the room and guessed how many games and how many Lego blocks would weigh the same as the object. Of course we estimated first! We used the scales to count how many Lego blocks.
My kitchen scales came to good use!
I found this interesting flower in our vegetable garden today - R claimed it had come off a tree he was trimming near by - very interesting.....
I found this Lemon Coconut Bar recipe on Pinterest. I whipped up a batch this afternoon for the first time and looked back at the plate to find a few pieces missing.... Hmmm... there are only two people who live in this house! Luckily there is plenty in the fridge! (Mum remind me to give you the recipe - it's like a lemon tart on the inside!)
R and I bought our Christmas tree 3 Christmases ago and have been buying a new decoration each year. It is getting a little bigger each year - I am not being very patient though! I still can't put lights on it! (Love our $8 stockings from Big W!).
Have a great week!
