DD6 & DD8 have spent the last 2 days focused on geometry (DD8 did squeeze in some elements/compounds work as well)
We've used 5 part cards to refresh all the parts of angles
and then moved onto adding angles and using the 360 protractor.
A couple of weeks ago I discovered a blog called Think! where she sets hands on challenges to get children thinking creatively.
Today I picked a food challenge - the girls were presented with 5/6 marshmallows and some cocktail sticks and they were asked to build an arch that would be be able to stand up on its own.
I love how they both came up with completely different solutions even though they were working side by side.
