Numeracy idea for measures

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Honey83, Nov 17, 2007.

  1. I have just come to unit Data Handling and Measures in numeracy. I am trying to think of a fun and exciting lesson for my low ability maths group to mathch the following object
    Pupils can...Read the numbered divisions on a scale and interpret the divisions between them (e.g. on a scale from 0 to 25 with intervals of 1 shown but only the divisions 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 numbered); use a ruler to draw and measure lines to the nearest centimetre

    I don't know if its cos its stupid o clock on a saturday night or what but i'm wondering what main teaching activity to do to make this really interactive....any ideas?

  3. For drawing and measuring accurately, I gave them certain measurements (differentiated) and they drew a picture of a robot that had to include those measurements, so some worked with mm and some cm

    I also used the ITP on my IWB to show different scales and the children had to write the answets on their pupil white boards
     
  4. e-mail me and I will send you what I have found from other LAs.

    Let me know which year group>

  5. I tried to email you before, but it got bounced back will try again, but i'm year 6, low ability, here's my email as well malingtong@hotmail.com x
     
  6. That would be really helpful- is it just me who is fining the new numeracy framework difficult to plan from...my planning is currently taking twice as long as before!
    i've got a year three class, but i am having to plan from the year two objectives, due to poor attainment

  7. hi,

    for measuring to the nearest cm i gave my class a challenge....i put up fibbonacci's (sp) statement that "the length of a persons arm from shoulder to wrist, is the same as the total length of all their fingers" i then put the children into mixed ability groups and got them to investigate this - they loved it and i even involved myself and the TA as the children could check our arms too!!

    hope this helps?? :)
     
  8. Thanks NQT123....such a simple activity but sounds like it would work really well...got my final NQT observation on Wednesday in maths and this looks like a good practical activity to use!!
    Thanks
