Playground chalk maths
While recovering from the flu, the last couple of days,I have been looking through my photos and found some from last year where my P7 class were drawing triangles, life size drawings of sea creatures from scale drawings and making up their own maths games to revise different areas of maths. Some pupils combined ropes and chalk to make more complex games. The one in the last photo was a carefully measured equilateral triangle to stand inside as part of the game and the children really liked the fact you could stand inside a triange and get a different perspective. Hopefully they will remember the names of different types of triangles now! Simple but effective and something I haven't done yet with this year's P7s.
