Wednesday

Household Items

Activity 1

Find 10 items in house. Estimate how long they are and then measure them using a ruler or tape measure. Are you measuring in mm, cm or m? How close was your estimate? 

 

Activity 2

Lets go on a shape hunt. What 2D and 3D shapes can you find around your house? Draw or write which items you find. Extend by recording the properties of each shape e.g. edges, vertices, faces. 

 

Thursday

Household Items Continued

Activity 1

Pick 6 items in your house (windows, doors, pens, pencils etc) and complete a tally chart show how many of each item you have. Remember when you tally you cross the gate when you get to 5! Once complete write 3 facts about your data e.g. Which item was the most popular? 

Activity 2

Find at least 12 different small items in your house and sort them into pairs. Predict which is heavier and which is lighter by holding them in your hands. Then weigh the items in each pair using scales. You may need an adult to help with this bit. Record the mass. Was your prediction correct?

 

Friday

Friday Fun

Play pairs with a partner. Either print out the 16 challenge cards or make them on paper. Place the question cards face down on one side of the table and the the answer cards on the other. Take it in turns to turn over a question card and answer card. If the cards match you win the pair and get another go. If your pairs don not match your the cards back overrand let the other player have a turn. The winner is the player with the most pairs.
