Many classes at school have been making new discoveries about measuring. They have solved many problems and worked in groups to find out more about Volume, Capacity, Mass, Length, Time, Temperature and Area.
The whole school was set the challenge of cooking at home using a variety of measures. Below are some of our wonderful mathematicians measuring and baking at home.
Here are some photos of Madeline and Caitlin making pizza dough. They love cooking and they do it quite regularly. The girls always spend at least half their weekend playing My Kitchen Rules in the backyard and cubby house with dirt, sand, water, grass, leaves and flowers. Caitlin and Madeline often cook with their Mum and now they are making sure they talk about the measurements also.
Here is a photo of Hannah enjoying her very last Anzac biscuit which she baked last Thursday. She did everything including reading the recipe, measuring the ingredients and mixing it all together, completely unassisted. The only thing she didn’t do was the dishes afterwards!! The vote from the rest of the family was VERY GOOD! The Anzac biscuits disappeared very quickly.
It is great to hear all the different ways that parents and children are measuring at home.
