## Interpreting Graphs

### Posted by lisar | Posted in Data, Graphing | Posted on September 30, 2014

Students are presented to a range of ready made graphs. Students share and record 3 or more statements about each graph.

## Questioning, Collecting and Displaying Data

### Posted by lisar | Posted in Data, Graphing | Posted on September 30, 2014

1. Students pose three or more questions for collecting categorical or numerical data (whichever is appropriate for each student). They then decide what the outcomes would be for each question.

2. Students then select one of their questions and survey their class mates, collecting their data in a tally.

3. After collecting the data, they display it in an appropriate graph such as a picture graph, bar graph, line graph or pie chart.

Students choose two items from a catalogue and work out their total mass. Converting between grams and kilograms where appropriate.

## Ordering Mass

### Posted by lisar | Posted in Mass, Measurement | Posted on September 30, 2014

Students cut out items from catalogues  and paste them in order according to their mass.

## Measuring grams and kilograms

### Posted by lisar | Posted in Mass, Measurement | Posted on September 30, 2014

Students use kitchen scales to measure items available to them in the room and record their measurements.

## Making 1Kg

Students use kitchen scales to make 1kg using items available to them in the room and record the items used to make 1kg.

## Symmetry in the Environment

Using a device such as an ipod or ipad, students can take photos of symmetry in the environment.

Apps such as Doodle Buddy allow you to take photos then uses drawing tools to draw over the photo. Using this app, students can draw in the lines of symmetry for their photos.

## Symmetry Art

Using kinder squares, students fold their page one or more times and then cut out shapes from their folded page. Page is then opened to reveal symmetrical patterns. Students can then draw in the lines of symmetry.

## Using Multiplication Strategies

### Posted by lisar | Posted in Multiplication | Posted on September 30, 2014

Students use playing cards to create a multiplication equation (eg. if a 6 and an 8 are drawn out, the equation will be 6 x 8, if a 2,4 and a 5 are drawn, one equation could be 24 x 5).

Students choose an appropriate strategy to solve the problem. If using the strategy place mat, students could tick the strategy used to keep a record of the strategies they are using.

Materials Needed:

*One sheet of grid paper

*Two 10 sided dice

* Two different coloured pencils

This game is played in pairs

Students take turns to roll the two dice. The numbers rolled are then multiplied together. The player who rolled, colours in an array using their coloured pencil onto the grid paper and record the equation.

The game continues until the page is full. The player who has covered the most area wins.
