Students create their own Fraction Creatures/Animals using kinder squares. They need to make different fractions, depending on their ability, label the fraction and use it to make a creature. Students working at a high level can create fractions where more than one part is ‘shaded’, e.g. use 3/4 of a kinder circle, or 7/8 of a kinder square. Refer to student instruction sheets attached.

Students create their own Angry Birds Course by using a ruler to draw different ‘scenes’. You may need to show some students what Angry Birds is and how to play, there are some good demonstrations on YouTube or you can quickly play a game on the IWB. Once students have completed their course, they then need to highlight or identify all of the angles located in their course.

This task can be differentiated by asking students to locate and label;

- Quarter turns and half turns
- Right angles and angles that are smaller or larger than a right angle
- Right, acute, obtuse, reflex and straight angles
- Use a protractor to measure the degrees in each of their angles and label next to the name

Quilt Project

Students create questions based around themselves with numerical answers, e.g. age, house number, number of siblings, number of letters in their first name, shoe size.. (the list is endless). Once students have the answers, they have to create equations to be worked out to get to their answer, e.g ‘My Age’ Answer=12, Equation could be 2×6= 10+2= or even more advanced using BODMAS, decimals, fractions etc.

Once students have created the equations and answers, they present these on a poster with the equation displayed on a piece of paper or a post it note that can be opened up to display the answer underneath.
