Toy Town

Today in Math we were doing model making.
First we had to copy some simple models from the illustrations.
Next we created the tallest tower that we could and then we tried to sketch it.
Finally we worked in pairs to create a building in a town. We designed a Toy Town. It had streets and traffic lights. We put it all together and used toy cars to play in toy town. The Math we did was:
* Space
* Shapes
* Counting
* Patterns
* Design
* Mapping
It was one of the best Math lessons ever.

  2. Dear Juniors,
    I really love your toy town and will show the Middles tomorrow. We used the same blocks but ours were chocolates. Each colour was a flavour. Green was mint, white was nougat, black was licorice and so on! Did you see our work?
